   46 STARS ON A BRILLIANT, ROYAL BLUE CANTON, 1907-1912, OKLAHOMA STATEHOOD, SCATTERED STAR POSITIONING


 

Description:
46 STARS ON A BRILLIANT, ROYAL BLUE CANTON, 1907-1912, OKLAHOMA STATEHOOD, SCATTERED STAR POSITIONING:

46 star American parade flag, printed on cotton. The stars are arranged in a rectilinear fashion, but vary in position on their vertical axis. This adds substantial folk quality to the flag�s design. The striking, royal blue canton and scarlet red stripes also lend to its strong visual appeal.

The 46th state, Oklahoma, joined the Union on November 16th, 1907, during Teddy Roosevelt�s presidency. Roosevelt had many friends in the Oklahoma Territory from his Rough Rider days, and pushed it through to statehood. The 46 star flag became official on July 4th, 1908 and remained so until July 3rd, 1912. Many 46 star flags were made earlier, however, in great anticipation of the future addition of the state, which had previously been appointed to Native Americans.

Mounting: The poplar molding dates to the same era as the flag, ca 1890-1910, and retains its original, dark varnished surface. The flag has been hand-stitched to 100% cotton rag mat. Spacers keep the textile away from the glass, which is U.V. protective.

Condition: The colors are strong and bright. There is minor staining just in from the hoist end, but there are no serious condition issues.
