The original design of the Washington state flag was somewhat of a family affair. The emblem of the state seal was first designed in 1889 by Olympia jeweler, Charles Talcott. Talcott used an ink bottle and a silver dollar to draw the rings of the seal. He then pasted a postage stamp in the center for the picture of George Washington. His brother, L. Grant Talcott, lettered the words "The Seal of the State of Washington 1889," and another brother, G. N. Talcott, cut the printing dye. This seal was later adopted for use on the state flag which was designed by the Washington chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. On June 7th, 1923, over 30 years after Washington became a state, this flag was officially adopted into law.
Although this flag has undergone minor revisions since its adoption, to include the use of standardized colors in 1955 and a modernized seal in 1967, it continues to be the only state in the union to possess a green field (background). Additionally, it is the only state flag to display an image of an actual person. Per WAC 434-04-017, the Washington State flag is one of only two state flags in the nation that requires double sided construction to ensure the design is readable from both sides.
