 Washington State Flag Coloring Page

The Flag of the State of Washington consists of the state seal (which bears an image of George Washington) on a field of dark green with gold fringe being optional. It is the only U.S. state flag with a field of green as well as the only state flag with the image of an American president.

The design was adopted in 1923, prior to which Washington had no official state flag. At the turn of the 20th century, Washington state residents flew a blue military flag with President Washington's profile in gold according to information on the Washington Secretary of State's Web site. Later unofficial flags were similar to today's flag but featured the state seal in gold on a green or purple field.

Because the seal must be stitched on both sides, the flag is the most costly state flag in the United States. People who wish to duplicate the Washington state flag must send two copies of their version of the flag to the Washington Secretary of State. If approved, the secretary will then send one copy of the flag back to its maker marked "approved" and keep the other on file.
