Inscription.  The Union Flag, or Flag of Great Britain, was adopted when the crowns of England and Scotland united in the early 1600s. This flag flew over Oklahoma in 1663 when Charles II of England gave a strip of land extending from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean to several members of the nobility as a reward for their support. Known as the Province of Carolina, this strip of land included present day Oklahoma.
