Ohio

The flag of Ohio – the symbol of one of the 50 US states.

Design

The flag of Ohio is unique by its shape. It is not rectangular like other flags of most of the US states. The flags of such forms are more correctly called burgees (bûr’jes).

Ohio’s flag has a blue triangle which symbolizes the hills and valleys that are very numerous in the territory of Ohio. It also consists of white stars, thirteen of which are on the right side of a white circle. They represent the first thirteen states that became part of the USA. Additional four stars are used in order to compose the amount of seventeen, as Ohio became the 17th state to join the US (1803). The stripes in red and white colors symbolize the water and land roads of Ohio. The white circle looks similar to the first letter of  “Ohio”, thus, means the name of the state.

History

The flag of Ohio was designed by John Eisemann and authorized in 1902. Before this, since entering the USA in 1803, the state did not have its own official flag.
