WASHINGTON STATE FLAG HISTORY & MEANING
Washington became a state in 1889 but didn’t adopt this flag until 1923. The Washington Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution designed this flag in 1915, basing it off a popular design used throughout the state featuring a likeness of the first president, George Washington.
After the flag’s adoption in 1923, it underwent color standardization throughout the next several years and was finalized to its current color in 1967.
The Washington state flag contains the seal of the state, and, consequently, is the only state flag to feature the image of an American president. According to Senator Guy B. Groff, sponsor of the 1923 bill that adopted the flag, the flag's greenfield represented the "verdant fields" of Western Washington, while the gold seal represented the "wheat areas" of Eastern Washington.
