Wyoming.png|Wyoming State Flag Simplistic Proposal. For this flag I didn’t need to change much. I just replaced the state seal with a star representing the state itself. The red represents the Native Americans who once lived there, and the white is purity and uprightness (same as the Texas flag). By Ed Mitchell. 2013.

The flag of Wyoming is blue with a red border, fimbriated in white. In the center is a white silhouette of an American bison, within which the state seal is placed.

In 1916 the Wyoming Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) ran a contest inviting the public to submit possible designs for a Wyoming flag. A prize of $20 was offered to the winner, and the DAR received a total of 37 entries. They chose a drawing by Verna Keays, a recent graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago. On January 31, 1917, Governor Robert D. Carey signed the state flag bill into law and the bison flag was officially adopted.
