About OHIO
line

OHIO was admitted to Statehood on March 1, 1803.
It was the first state admitted to the Union under the Northwest Ordinance.

The origin of state's name was from the Iroquois Indian word for "good river". Native Americans in today's Ohio included the Shawnee, Iroquois, Miamis, and Wyandots

line

Ohio's State Flag was adopted in 1902.
flag

The Ohio Burgee, as the swallowtail design is properly called, was designed by John Eisemann. The large blue triangle represents Ohio's hills and valleys, and the stripes represent the original states of the union; the 4 stars added to the peak of the triangle symbolize that Ohio was the 17th state admitted to the union. The white circle with its red center not only represents the "O" in Ohio, but also suggests Ohio's famous nickname, "The Buckeye State".

line

Eight U.S. presidents hailed from Ohio at the time of their elections, earning the state the nickname of "Mother of Presidents". The seven presidents born in Ohio were Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James A. Garfield, Benjamin Harrison (grandson of William Henry Harrison), William McKinley, William Howard Taft and Warren G. Harding
William Henry Harrison lived most of his life in Ohio, though he was born in Virginia
