Copyright © 1998 WriteLine. All Rights Reserved. Oklahoma state flag
State Flag:

Designed by a local artist, this flag honors the state's Native American heritage. The blue background comes from a flag carried by Choctaw soldiers during the Civil War. The center shows an Osage warrior battle shield made of buffalo hide and decorated with eagle feathers and two symbols of peace: the Calumet peace pipe and the olive branch. The crosses on the shield are Native American signs for stars.

Famous Person:

Will Rogers

"I do not belong to an organized political party. I'm a Democrat."

"Congress is so strange. A man gets up to speak and says nothing, nobody listens and then everybody disagrees."

"I really can't see any advantage of having one of your party in as President. I would rather be able to criticize a man than have to apologize for him."

Born November 5, 1879 in what was then called Indian Territory, Will Rogers was an actor and a political humorist who used his rope twirling as part of his act in vaudeville. The stage act soon turned into a weekly syndicated column, poking fun of government and politicians. At the age of 56 he died in a plane crash on his way to the Orient.
