The flag of Oregon is the only state flag with different pictures on each side. On the reverse appears a beaver the state animal. Both sides have a field of navy blue with design in gold. The front: a heart shaped shield with an eagle on top, surrounded by thirty-three stars, which is the number of states in 1859. The scene on the shield shows the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean, mountains, forests and a covered wagon. A plow, wheat and pickax represent farming and mining. The eagle represents the United States. On a banner are the words "The Union" representing support for the United States. Finally the flag is emblazoned with the words "State of Oregon" above the picture and the date of statehood "1859" below. The state anthem is “Oregon, My Oregon” words by J.A. Buchanan, music by Henry Murtagh. With this video you can see the flag and hear the anthem. Good for all students.
