If you’re just joining us, you can catch up here in our Across the USA in 31 Days series. Every day this month I will bring you a small sample of printables from my larger eBook, which will be released later this month. I hope you will join me this month as we travel from state to state across the USA.
Today we’re traveling to my home state, Oklahoma. The 46th state added to the Union on November 16, 1907. The state where my husband and I were born and raised as well as 3 of our 4 kids. We are die-hard Sooner fans and love pretty much everything about the state. I even love the flag. I know that may sound weird, but it has so much meaning and history behind it, which I find fascinating.
Today you can grab these State Flag Coloring Pages for Oklahoma. The flag, as a whole, represents over 60 Native American groups and their ancestors. Choctaw soldiers carried blue flags during the Civil War, which gives us the background of the flag. The center shield, a battle shield of an Osage warrior, was made of buffalo hide and decorated with eagle feathers. The peace pipe and olive branch that lie across the shield are symbols of peace. And the crosses on the shield are Native American symbols for stars, which represent high ideals. The coloring pages are available in print for the pre-writers, dotted manuscript for early writers and dotted cursive for upper elementary.
