1. Current Oklahoma State Flag Marker
Inscription.  Our current Oklahoma Flag was adopted in 1925. It was designed by Louise Fluke from Shawnee, Oklahoma, with assistance from Joseph Thoburn, secretary of the Oklahoma Historical Society. The field is sky blue with a tan Osage shield in the middle. The shield contains small brown crosses, which is a symbol for stars. Hanging from the shield are Golden Eagle feathers, white with brown tips. A yellow pipe with red bowl and cloth strips lay across the shield. An olive branch serves as a symbol of peace. The only change to the flag occurred in 1941 when the word Oklahoma was added in white letters across the bottom. Oklahoma means Land of the Red Man in the Choctaw language.
