Oregon became the 33rd state admitted to the union on February 14th, 1859. The flag of Oregon is a two-sided flag in navy blue and gold with optional fringe and the only U.S. state flag to feature different designs on both sides of its flag. The Oregon state flag became official on February 26th, 1925. In 2009, the Oregon Sesquicentennial created a statewide contest to redesign the state's flag. The winning design was created by a mapmaker for Clackamas Country, Randall Gray.
