Annin - Ohio state flag 3x5 ft. Nylon SolarGuard
About this item
The Ohio state flag was adopted in 1902 and is the only state flag that is not rectangular. Architect John Eisemann designed the Ohio state burgee: a pennant with a swallowtail tip. The "O" in the center of the blue field is thought to represent both the name Ohio and the buckeye. The buckeye is a round nut from the buckeye tree, which is found in abundance in Ohio and gives it its nickname: "The Buckeye State." Thirteen white stars surround the letter O, representing the original thirteen states. Four separate stars sit alone to the right, representing the four states joining the Union after the original thirteen: Vermont, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio. Five red and white stripes complete the Ohio state flag. All Annin Flagmakers flags are sewn in either South Boston, VA or Coshocton, OH. Annin's superior quality is time-tested and meets the requirements of the most discerning buyer.
