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.
The Pacific Northwest is somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit. I have friends who live in both Oregon and Washington and I just love their pictures. Oregon is so different from where we have lived or even visited, it is definitely on my must-see list! Oregon joined the Union on February 14, 1859 as the 33rd state. As one of three states in the lower 48 that borders the Pacific Ocean, it’s mild winter climate is heavily influenced by the ocean itself.
Today you can download the Oregon State Flag Coloring Pages. The Oregon flag is the only state to have different pictures on both sides and was not adopted as the state flag until 1925, sixty-six years after statehood. The front side, which you will color in these pages, is a solid navy blue background with gold detail. It depicts a heart shaped shield with an eagle on top, which represents the United States, and surrounded by 33 stars. The shield shows a scene where the sun is setting over the Pacific ocean, mountains, forest and a covered wagon. A plow, wheat and pickax represent the the farming and mining of the state. You will also see two ships on the horizon – the one leaving is a British ship and the one arriving is a United States ship representing trade. The banner in the middle of the shield says, “The Union,” and shows Oregon’s support for the United States. Above the shield is written, “The State of Oregon” and below is the year of statehood “1859”. The reverse side of the flag also has a navy blue background and gold detail. The only symbol on that side is a beaver, which is the state animal.
