The state flag of Oregon is a double-sided navy blue and gold flag. On the front, the words The State of Oregon are followed by the state seal and the year that the state got admitted as a state (1859.) On the back side, the state animal, a single gold beaver is on it. In 1971, there were 2 double-sided flags, until Massachusetts went back to a single sided flag. Thus, making Oregon a very unique flag state.

Oregon designated the beaver (Castor canadensis) as the official state animal in 1969.The beaver appears on the reverse of the state flag, and Oregon's nickname is The Beaver State (stemming from the early 19th century when fur hats were fashionable and Oregon’s streams were an important source of beaver). Beavers were over-trapped by early settlers for their fur, eliminating them from much of their original range. Native Americans and early settlers also ate beaver meat. The trapping routes used by early "mountain men" later became known as The Oregon Trail, traveled by thousands of pioneers in the 1840's. Through management and partial protection, the beaver is reestablished throughout Oregon.

The Western Meadowlark is a medium-sized icterid bird, about 8.5 in in length. It nests on the ground in open grasslands across western and central North America.

Alis volat propriis is a Latin phrase used as the motto of U.S. state of Oregon. The official English version of the motto is "She flies with her own wings" in keeping with the tradition of considering countries and territories to be feminine.

Oregon designated the Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) as the official state tree in 1939. Named after a Scottish botanist who traveled through Oregon in the 1820's, the Douglas fir can grow to a height of 325 feet and have a 15 foot diameter trunk (averaging 200 feet in height and six feet in diameter).

The Bear Flag is the official flag of California. It is called the Bear Flag. The official flag was named in 1911, 106 years ago by the California legislature, mostly by Governer Hiram Johnson. Before this flag, was the Lone Star Flag, not the flag that Texas now has. It looks like this:

The California grizzly (Ursus arctos californicus) is extinct, but related to the mass popular and well known grizzly of North America.

The California Golden Trout, or simply the Golden Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss aguabonita), is a subspecies of the rainbow trout native to California. It is 15-30 cm long. The Wyoming Game & Fish Department state record golden trout measured 28 in (71 cm) and weighed 11.25 lb (5.10 kg), caught in Cook Lake, Wyoming in 1948.[10] The IGFA "All-Tackle Length Record" for O. m. aguabonita measured 21 in (53 cm) caught in Golden Lake, Wyoming in 2012. The fish was admitted as the state fish in 1947, 70 years ago.

Sequoia sempervirens is the sole living species of the genus Sequoia in the cypress family Cupressaceae (formerly treated in Taxodiaceae). The trees can be 1,200 years to 1,800 years old. They can be almost 500 feet tall. Its diameter is 29.2 feet. They live for 2,100,000 acres along the coast of California.

The expression is also the state motto of California, referring to the momentous discovery of gold near Sutter's Mill in 1848. The California State Seal has included the word "eureka" since its original design by Robert S. Garnett in 1850; the official text from that time describing the seal states that this word's meaning applies "either to the principle involved in the admission of the State or the success of the miner at work". In 1957 the state legislature attempted to make "In God We Trust" the state motto as part of the same post WWII anti-Communist movement that successfully added the term "under God" to the American Pledge of Allegiance in 1954, but this attempt did not succeed and "Eureka" was made the official motto in 1963.
