Oregon State Flag Symbols

Categories: History

The Oregon state flag is full of symbolism, some flag experts (Vexillologists) say too much. This project teaches students about the flag and the meaning of its many parts.


  • Students cut out and fold the tri-fold book. Template for copying is on page two.
  • In each section, students draw a part of the flag, then explain its symbolism. There are more parts of the flag, than sections of the book.
  • Have students pick which ones they think best represent Oregon.
  • Afterward, discuss why they picked these parts of the flag.
