“A History of Oklahoma’s 46-Star Flag” presentation by Karen Smith Hunter
July 1, 11 a.m.
The Pioneer Woman Museum and Statue will host a special presentation on the history of Oklahoma’s first flag on Saturday, July 1, at 11 a.m. Karen Smith Hunter will be the featured presenter.
Oklahoma became a state in 1907, but the first state flag was not adopted until 1911. It consisted of a red field with a five-pointed, white star edged with blue. The number 46 in blue, denoting Oklahoma’s position as the 46th state, was placed in the star’s center. This flag was replaced in 1925.
Hunter will also discuss the Betsy Ross Association as part of her presentation. It is free to attend. The Pioneer Woman Museum is located at 701 Monument Rd. in Ponca City. For more information about the museum, please call 580-765-6108 or visit its website, pioneerwomanmuseum.com.
