Ohio - Flag Facts
The Ohio flag became the official flag in 1902. The Ohio swallowtail flag is the most unique shape of all the state flags. Its uncomplicated design is filled with symbolism. The flag is comprised of:
- the left hoist end contains a large blue triangle representing Ohio’s hills and valleys
- in the blue triangle is a red circle in the center of a white circle, creating a white “O”, which relates to the state’s nickname, the Buckeye State (see below)
- in the triangle around the circle are seventeen white stars; thirteen stars around the “O” are symbolic of the original thirteen states, the four additional stars at the top of the triangle bring the total to seventeen, representing Ohio as the 17th state joining the United States in 1803
- The three red and two white horizontal strips extending from the triangle to the end of the flag, representing the roads and waterways of the state
The state got the Buckeye nickname due to the abundance of buckeye trees. The Indians living in Ohio named the tree buckeye because the nut of the tree resembled the shape and color of a deer’s eye.
