About the Ohio State Flag
The red, white and blue colors of the Ohio state flag may not represent a bold choice on the part of its designer, but Ohio does claim the only state flag that is not rectangular. The tapered, swallow-tail shape has its own special name, the Ohio Burgee. The unique flag was created by John Eisenmann, an architect and designer for the Ohio State Pan-American Exposition. The flag was adopted by the state legislature in May, 1902.
The Ohio flag is composed of three red and two broader white horizontal stripes. A blue triangular field has its base on the staff side, with its apex in the middle of the center red stripe. Within the blue field, seventeen white, five-pointed stars are grouped around a red disc superimposed upon a white circular "O."
Mr. Eisenmann explained the symbolism of his flag: "The triangles formed by the main lines of the flag represent the hills and valleys as typified in the State Seal, and the stripes the roads and waterways. The stars, indicating the 13 original states of the Union, are grouped about the circle which represents the Northwest Territory; and that Ohio was the seventeenth state admitted into the Union is shown by adding four more stars. The white circle with its red center, not only represents the initial letter of Ohio, but is suggestive of its being the 'Buckeye State'."
