About the Oregon State Flag

 

The two-color Oregon state flag may appear rather plain at first, but it has one feature that distinguishes it from all other state flags:  it is the only flag that has a different design on each side.  

 

The flag face features a blue field with the words State of Oregon in gold lettering across the top.  In the center is a gold shield encircled by 33 stars, representing Oregon's status as the 33rd state admitted to the Union.  Below the shield in gold lettering is the date of Oregon's statehood, 1859.

 

On the shield, a radiant sun sinks into the Pacific Ocean, upon which two ships are sailing.  A British Man-of-War is shown departing as an American trade vessel arrives.  The ships are said to represent the claim to the land laid concurrently by both Great Britain and the United States.  The tack of the two ships represents the ascendance of American power in the western hemisphere.  Another interpretation has the departure and arrival as representative of trade and commerce, turning a blind eye to the British ship's being a military vessel.

 

Mountains and forests appear in the foreground, emblematic of the natural resources and scenic beauty of Oregon.  A Conestoga wagon pays tribute to the region's early settlers.  A plow, a sheaf of wheat and a pickax illustrate the early industry of the state, agriculture and mining.

 

The crest of the shield is an American eagle, facing right - a good omen.  Below the Conestoga wagon is a banner inscribed with the words "The Union."  The eagle and the banner express support for the United States of America.

 

The symbolism of the flag's obverse is much simpler.  The Beaver State has paid tribute to its state animal, seen perched upon a log and depicted in gold, on its state flag.
