  • Things written in blue will probably show up later as questions.
  • Ohio’s size is 34 th of the 50 states. It is just smaller than Pennsylvania, and just larger than Virginia. Ohio was the 17 th state to join the United States. The name comes from an Iroquoian word, which sounds more like “oheeyo”
  • From 1803-1810, and then also from 1812-1816, Chillicothe was the capital of Ohio.
  • From 1810-1812, Zanesville was made the capital.
  • First adopted in 1967, modified in 1996.
  • The triangles formed by the main lines of the flag represent the hills and valleys as typified in the State Seal, and the stripes the roads and waterways. The stars, indicating the thirteen original states of the Union, are grouped about the circle which represents the Northwest Territory; and that Ohio was the seventeenth state admitted into the Union is shown by adding four more stars. The white circle with its red center, not only represents the initial letter of Ohio, but is suggestive of its being the Buckeye State.- John Eisemann, designer
  • Said to be chosen in honor of President William McKinley who often wore a red carnation on his lapel.
  • The nuts are mildly poisonous, but they are edible if they have been roasted and leached first. The Native Americans generally ate them only when other nuts were not plentiful or available, as it was more work to make the buckeye edible. If you eat them without roasting and leaching, you will get quite sick.
  • During General William Henry Harrison’s presidential campaign, a comment was made by an opposition newspaper that prompted his campaign to adopt a strand of buckeyes as one of his symbols.
  • ACLU challenged the motto in 1997, federal courts ruled that it was not in violation of the first amendment of the US constitution because it did not endorse a specific God.
  • I sailed away; Wandered afar; Crossed the mighty restless sea; Looked for where I ought to be. Cities so grand, mountains above, Led to this land I love. Chorus Beautiful Ohio, where the golden grain Dwarf the lovely flowers in the summer rain. Cities rising high, silhouette the sky. Freedom is supreme in this majestic land; Mighty factories seem to hum a tune, so grand. Beautiful Ohio, thy wonders are in view, Land where my dreams all come true!
  • Until 2009, Ohio was the only state to have an official (legislation wise) rock song.
  • An inscription reads "Birthplace of Aviation Pioneers." One of the first men to fly, Orville Wright, was born in Ohio. The first American to orbit the earth, John Glenn, was born in Ohio. The first man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong was born in Ohio. The inscription seems apt. The date on the coin, 1803, is the year that Ohio became part of the United States.
  • The ripe skins are light green and may have black splotches on it, and the part you eat (the flesh) is yellow.
