Flag of Oklahoma
Adopted 1941 [1]
Designed by Oklahoma State Legislature, based on 1925 design, but with lettering
Proportions 2:3 [2]

The flag of Oklahoma consists of a blue background with an brown and maroon stylized Indian shield above the center of the flag, with a stylized green olive branch crossing a stylized tan and maroon peace pipe above the shield. Underneath the shield, branch, and pipe is the word "OKLAHOMA" in white letters.


The blue background symbolizes devotion[3], and is taken from an Indian flag flown during the American Civil War. The other symbols on the flag, other than "OKLAHOMA", represent many different Oklahoman Native American tribes. The word "OKLAHOMA" represents the state of Oklahoma, which is extremely obvious.


  • The flag of Oklahoma and the flag of New Mexico are the only United States state flags with Indian symbols on them. The two are also the only United States state flags without a five-pointed star representing a star.
