The Ohio flag was designed by John Eisemann and was adopted in 1902. It is the only flag of any state in the Union that is not rectangular. On the right side, a blue triangle is depicted and symbolizes the state’s many hills and valleys. There are seventeen stars on the banner, which symbolize the fact that Ohio was the 17th state admitted into the Union.
The red and white circle in the middle form the shape on an “O”. The red and white bands represent waterways and roads. The Ohio flag is actually a type called a burgee.
