STATE GEMSTONE Since 1965 the state gemstone  is Flint.  Flint is a smooth, hard rock of sedimentary origin. Indians used flint to make knives, spear points, and arrowheads. Ohio early settlers used it for flintlock guns and millstones.
STATE FLAG Ohio's state flag was adopted in 1902. The Ohio burgee, as the swallowtail design is properly called, was designed by John Eisemann. The white circle with its red center not only represents the "O" in Ohio, but also suggests Ohio's famous nickname, "The Buckeye State." A large blue triangle represents Ohio's hills and valleys, and the stripes represent roads and waterways. The collection of 13 stars grouped about the circle represent the original states of the union.  The 4 stars added to the peak of the triangle symbolized Ohio was the 17th state admitted to the union.
STATE COLORS  
STATE SEAL Foreground is a sheaf of wheat represents Ohio's agricultural strength. Bundle of 17 arrows symbolizes Ohio's status as the 17th state admitted to the union. The thirteen rays around the sun represent the thirteen original colonies shining over the first state in the Northwest Territory and was the first state west of the Allegheny Mountains. Scioto River flows between the mountain and the cultivated fields in the foreground. Background contains a portrayal of Mount Logan, with a 3/4 full sun rising behind.
