Oklahoma Flag History

Adopted: November 1, 2006

Oklahoma Flag Design: Buffalo-skin shield with seven eagle feathers on a sky blue field.

Designed by Louise Fluke

The Oklahoma flag features an Osage warrior's shield on a blue background. An olive branch and a calumet, or peace pipe, lay across the shield. Seven eagle feathers decorate the shield. Both of these items are symbols of peace. The design was officially adopted as Oklahoma's flag in 1925. In 1941 the word "Oklahoma" was added beneath the shield.

 

The First Oklahoma State Flag

The First Oklahoma State Flag

Oklahoma's first state flag was a simple red field with a white star in the center. The white star had the number 46 inside it, representing Oklahoma as the 46th state in the union. The Oklahoma legislature adopted it in 1911. However, during the 1910s and 1920s, many Oklahomans began to associate the red flag with Communism and labeled it the "red rag of sedition." Oklahoma soldiers did not want to carry the flag because it looked like an enemy's flag. Others felt that the design lacked significance or positive meaning. It reminded them of the red flags people would hang on a house to warn visitors that a resident had a contagious disease.

In the mid-1920s, Joseph Thoburn, the executive secretary of the Oklahoma Historical Society, worked with the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and held a contest where artists could submit designs for a new flag.
The winner was Louise Funk Fluke, an Oklahoma artist who had attended Columbia University and the Chicago Art Institute. Fluke had consulted with Thoburn about Native American lore and she drew inspiration from Native American artifacts at the Historical Society. One of the items, an Osage shield, is on exhibit at the Oklahoma History Center today.

The official description from the Oklahoma Statutes describes the flag as such:

A sky-blue field with a circular rawhide shield of an American Indian Warrior, decorated with six painted crosses on the face thereof, the lower half of the shield to be fringed with seven pendant eagle feathers and superinduced upon the face of the shield a calumet or peace pipe, crossed at right angles by an olive branch as illustrated by the design accompanying this resolution.

According to Fluke, almost every aspect of the flag has an important meaning. The blue field represents devotion. The shield represents engaging in warfare only when it is necessary for defense, and the crosses on the shield are a traditional Osage motif that represents stars. The feathers do not have any meaning; Fluke merely copied them from the original shield. The peace pipe and olive branch crossed over the shield show that peace is above all. Fluke said that the entire flag represents Oklahomans united in peace.

The Oklahoma legislature adopted the new flag on April 2, 1925, and added the word "Oklahoma" to it in 1941.

 

Oklahoma Flag Salute

The state legislature adopted the following salute to the flag in 1982:

"I salute the Flag of the State of Oklahoma: Its symbols of peace unite all people."

Frequently Asked Questions

This is the most common question asked in the industry and the most difficult to answer. No two flags will wear the same due to weather conditions and how often the flag is flown. Our flags offer the best stitching and highest quality materials to get your flag off to a great start.

Do not hang a flag where the wind will whip it against rough surface, such as tree branches, wires or cables or the outside of your home or building. Inspect your flags regularly for signs of wear. Repair any minor rips or tears right away this can be mended easily with a sewing machine or sewing kit. Keep the surface of the pole free of dirt, rust or corrosion that could damage or stain your flag.

We recommend that you hand-wash your flag with mild soap, rinse thoroughly and air dry. You can also use a dry cleaning service.

Exposing your flag to rain, wind, snow or high winds will shorten the life of your flag considerably. If you leave your flag exposed to the elements, it will greatly reduce the life of your flag.

Yes, as long as your pole is large enough to support the weight of the flags. The USA Flag must always fly at the top. The flag underneath should be at least one foot lower and be one size smaller than the USA Flag. Flags of other countries are not to be flown beneath the USA Flag.

If your flag is significantly faded, torn or tattered it is time to retire your flag. Your flag should be retired privately in a dignified manner. In addition, many local community organizations have flag disposal centers that will dispose of your flag for you.
