The official flag of Washington contains the state seal that displays the image of the state namesake and the founding father of the U.S George Washington. His image is on a field of dark green with gold fringe. In fact, it is the lone U.S. state flag with a field of green and the only state flag with an image of a former American president.
Did you know that Washington state did not adopt an official design for its flag until 1923? When the legislature finally approved a law that would set forth the design of the official flag of Washington state, it particularly described that the flag must be of dark green silk or bunting, bearing in its center a reproduction of the seal of Washington state. The emblem on the state flag is the official state seal which was designed by Olympia jeweler Charles Talcot back in 1889. Charles used an ink bottle and a silver dollar to illustrate the rings of the seal, and he then pasted a postage stamp in the center for the image of George Washington.
