Ohio Flag

The Ohio state flag has a unique shape, called a swallowtail design, and was adopted in 1902.  Using the same color scheme as Old Glory, the blue field represents Ohio's hills and valleys and the stripes represent the roads and waterways.  There are a total of seventeen stars, an easy way to remember that Ohio was the seventeenth state admitted to the union.  There is even more symbolism, which you can about at the link below.
