U.S state flag of Washington
Facts, history and meaning about the flag of Washington

The state flag of Washington is a unique and distinctive design that features a green field with the state seal in the center. The seal is encircled by the words "The Seal of the State of Washington" and "1889," the year that Washington became a state. The seal depicts a portrait of George Washington, the first President of the United States, in profile. He is shown facing left.

The green background of the flag represents the lush forests that cover much of Washington State, while the state seal pays tribute to its namesake, George Washington. The design is simple yet striking, with the contrasting green and white making the seal stand out.

Interestingly, the Washington State Flag was not officially adopted until 1923, despite Washington joining the Union in 1889. Prior to that, a number of unofficial designs were used, including a flag with the state seal on a blue field, and a flag with a gold circle and an eagle in the center.
