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.
