The flag of Ohio is shown flying against a blue sky. Ohio's state flag was adopted in 1902. The Ohio burgee, or swallowtail design, was designed by John Eisemann. The large blue triangle represents Ohio's hills and valleys, and the stripes represent roads and waterways. The 13 stars grouped about the circle represent the original states of the union; the 4 stars added to the peak of the triangle symbolize that Ohio was the 17th state admitted to the union. The white circle with its red center not only represents the "O" in Ohio, but also suggests Ohio's famous nickname, "The Buckeye State". Listen to the state of Ohio anthem, which is “Beautiful Ohio” by Mary Earl, original lyrics by Wilbert McBride. With this video you can see the flag and hear the anthem. Good for all students.
