History of Oklahoma flag
Oklahoma adopted its first state flag in 1911. It has a red background (to represent the Native American population) with the number 46 inscribed at the center of a blue-bordered white star (to represent Oklahoma's admission to the Union as the 46th state) It was not liked by many because of its resemblance to communist flag. It also looked like the quarantine flag that warns people to keep away from homes where there is a contagious disease.
The current Oklahoma state flag was designed by Louise (Funk) Fluke. Her design was the winner of a state flag contest sponsored by the Oklahoma Daughters of the American Revolution in 1925. It was adopted on April 2, 1925. On May 9, 1941, the Oklahoma Legislature added the word OKLAHOMA underneath the shield of the flag.
