State Symbols

The Oklahoma flag was designed in 1925 by Mrs. Louise Funk Fluke who used both colors and symbols to honor the sixty different Native American tribes living in Oklahoma. The word Oklahoma in white was added on in 1941.  On a field of blue is an Osage shield, a buffalo hide and eagle feathers.  The crosses on the shield are Native American signs for stars. An olive branch and a peace pipe lays across the shield symbolizing peace.

Oklahoma seal
The state seal shows a pioneer and an Indian shaking hands beneath the Scales of Justice, centered in the star.
The star's five ponts each contain symbols of the Five Civilized Tribes. The star is surrounded by 45 smaller stars representing the other states admitted to the U.S. before Oklahoma.
Oklahoma's state seal has a dark blue background. The large center star is white, the smaller stars are gold and the ring around the edge of the seal is gold.

Lyrics to - OKLAHOMA!
  Brand new state! Brand new state, gonna treat you great!
  Gonna give you barley, carrots and pertaters!
  Pasture fer the cattle, spinach and termayters!
  Flowers on the prairie where the June bugs zoom,
  Plen'y of air and plen'y of room,
  Plen'y of room to swing a rope!
  Plen'y of heart and plen'y of hope!
  Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain,
  And the waivin' wheat can sure smell sweet
  When the wind comes right behind the rain.
  Oklahoma, ev'ry night my honey lamb and I
  Sit alone and talk and watch a hawk makin' lazy circles in the sky.
  We know we belong to the land
  And the land we belong to is grand!
  And when we say YEEOW! A-Yip-I-oee-ay!
  We're only sayin'
  You're doin' fine, Oklahoma!
  Oklahoma-- O.K.
