Washington Flag
State Flag of Washington
Although Washington was admitted to the Union in 1889, it was not until 1923 that the Washington state flag was officially adopted. Of course, there had been many unofficial State flags in preceding years with presumably all of them bearing the likeness of our First President, so adoption of a flag served more to standardize what was already in existence than to create something entirely new.

The Washington state flag is unusual in a few ways. To begin with, it is the only green state flag. It is also the only state flag that is double-sided—at least the only one that has text on it, and it is the only state flag with the likeness of a person, being in this case, George Washington.
