This 3'x5' Oregon State flag is digitally printed on our commercial quality 200 denier nylon fabric. The state seal on the front and the beaver on the back have an opaque material sewn between them so that the flag reads correct on both sides. It is finished with a strong polyester header, has a fully sewn hem on the fly end, and includes two brass grommets for easy attachment to your flagpole.
Made in the USA.
Oregon is one of only two states in the nation who's logo must read correctly on both sides of the flag. It is also the only state with a different image on the back than on the front. The state flag, with a dark blue field (background), includes the escutcheon of the state seal on the front plus a beaver floating on a log on the back, thus helping to identify the state as the "Beaver" state! The state seal, itself, was designed in 1855 - two years before Oregon was admitted to the Union, by Harvey Gordon, a surveyor by trade,. It contains significant detail, amongst which is a setting sun, two oxen pulling a Conestoga wagon, a forest, a plow, a sheaf of grain, two ships floating on the sea (one a departing British man o' war and the other an arriving American ship). plus a bald eagle at the top of a shield surrounded by 33 stars (to represent the fact that Oregon was the 33rd state to join the union). Oregon is one of the last states to formally adopt a flag, not doing so until February 26, 1925, when Governor Walter Pierce signed the Oregon State Flag Adoption Act, Senate Bill 195, whereupon Oregon National Guard Adjutant General George A. White asked the Meier & Frank Department Store in Portland to create it. Seamstresses Blanche Cox and Marjorie Kennedy finished the flag in time to represent Oregon in the all-state flag display at the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Lexington in April 1925. The original 1925 flag, once thought to have been lost in the 1935 fire that destroyed the state capital, was found framed in a stairwell in Pierce Library at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande, where it remains on display to this day.
