Like many other states, the history of the Wyoming state flag can be traced back to the Daughters of the American Revolution. Dr. Grace Raymond Hebard, a professor at the University of Wyoming and D.A.R. state regent, proposed that a flag should be designed for the state in 1916. The D.A.R. offered a $20.00 prize to the person who submitted the winning design. Verna Parke Keays, a recent graduate of the Chicago Institute of Art, was urged by her father to submit a design. Verna created what she felt was the perfect design and she was correct when it was later chosen as the winner. The design was perfected and a technical description was created resulting in its official adoption in January of 1917. The Wyoming flag is liberty blue with an inner border of white and an outer of red. These colors are to represent the U.S. Flag in combination, but each offer their own meaning as well. The red border refers to the Native Americans who originally inhabited the Wyoming area and the settlers who shed blood to reclaim the soil. The white is a symbol of purity and the blue is for fidelity, justice, and virility. It offers a bison in the center which is the Wyoming state mammal and in the center of the bison is the Great Seal of Wyoming. The original design of the flag called for the Bison to be facing away from the staff to represents its original ability to roam the Wyoming area freely, but was changed for balance reasons and has been facing inward every since.
