The Oklahoma state flag features a traditional Osage warrior's buffalo-skin shield with seven eagle feathers on a blue field. An olive branch and a calumet, or peace pipe, lay across the shield. Seven eagle feathers decorate the shield. "Oklahoma" is below the shield in white lettering. The calumet is said to represent Native Americans and the olive branch to represent European Americans.
Oklahoma flags for outdoor use are constructed of a durable nylon fabric especially developed for flag use. Nylon's tight weave provides maximum beauty and flyability as well as brilliant, fast colors. Its weave helps shed pollution, dirt and grime that the looser weave alternatives absorb. Nylon is water repellent and mildew resistant.
