State Flag of Oklahoma family-friendly drop-in activity
April 17, 2 p.m.–3 p.m.
Visit the Pioneer Woman Museum and Statue on Saturday, April 17, to take part in a drop-in program and learn all about the state flag of Oklahoma. This free program is open to all ages interested in learning more about the Ponca City woman who handpainted the winning design of the state flag in use today.
The state flag of Oklahoma was created by Oklahoman Louise Fluke while she was living in Ponca City. Fluke was an art teacher and was inspired by a buckskin Osage shield, which she used as the center of her design.
This family-friendly program will be a fun way to learn more about the symbols that appear on the Oklahoma flag such as feathers, stars, and a peace pipe, which pays tribute to American Indian tribes. Fluke’s design was officially adopted as the state flag by the State of Oklahoma in 1925. A decommissioned state flag will be signed by each participant who takes part in the program.
