State Flag

The Oklahoma state flag honors more than 60 groups of Native Americans and their ancestors. The background of the flag is sky blue. In the center of the flag, an Osage warrior’s tan colored battle shield outlined in red is decorated with eagle feathers. Two symbols of peace lie across the shield. One is a white peace pipe with red tips. The other is a green olive branch. Crosses on the shield are Native American signs for stars, representing high ideals. The word “Oklahoma” is white. The state name comes from the Choctaw words “okla” meaning people, and “humma” meaning red, translated as “Red People.”
