PONCA CITY, Okla. — The Pioneer Woman Museum will host a special presentation on Saturday, July 1, at 11 a.m., on the history of Oklahoma’s first flag. Karen Smith Hunter will be the featured presenter.

Oklahoma became a state in 1907, but the first state flag was not adopted until 1911. It consisted of a red field with a five-pointed, white star edged with blue. The number 46, in blue, denoting Oklahoma’s position as the 46th state, was placed in the star’s center. This flag was replaced in 1925.

The program will also discuss the Betsy Ross Association. It is free to attend. The Pioneer Woman Museum is located at 701 Monument Rd. in Ponca City. For more information, please call 580-765-6108 or visit their website, pioneerwomanmuseum.com.
