Oregon state flag coloring pages

Oct 27 2019

For the Oregon Sesquicentennial in 2009, The Oregonian created a statewide contest to redesign the state flag. The newspaper collected and published the entries with the public voting on the winning design. The winning design was created by Randall Gray, a map maker for Clackamas County. In his design, Gray emphasized the beaver found on the current flag’s reverse. The star represents Oregon’s place in the Union while the green represents the natural wilderness and forests of Oregon. After the contest had started with votes being cast, there were requests for the Oregonian to add an 11th option, “NONE OF THE ABOVE”, meaning, keep the current state flag as it is. In the final tally of votes, “NONE” received the most votes.
