Missouri State Flag
Missouri was once the Gateway to the West, a port in the nation's heartland, and was known as a launching point for westward expansion.
 
Lewis and Clark were among the first to journey west from Missouri. Traveling along the Missouri River, they encountered numerous grizzly bears and were the first to document the species.
 
Traveling on the Missouri River, mountain men and settlers followed their routes to the Pacific Northwest. When gold was discovered in California, prospectors and adventurers flocked to Missouri, where steamboats took them to the Santa Fe Trail. River traffic increased so much during this time that St. Louis became the second-largest port in the country.
 
In 1908, the Missouri chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution realized that Missouri had no state flag. They formed a committee to design the official flag of Missouri. Committee chairwoman Marie Oliver eventually designed the flag herself, centering the state seal on a field of red, white, and blue. On either side of the Missouri seal, harkening back to the days of Lewis and Clark, are two huge grizzly bears.
