Letter: Oregon has a great state flag

Published on June 16, 2017 4:09PM

Your editorial of June 14 “A flag worth celebrating” about the U.S. flag was very good, except for its dig at the state of Oregon flag.

I love the Oregon flag. If you can not see the symbols on the Oregon flag, get a bigger flag. Each symbol has a rich history. Even the Oregon Blue Book does a very poor job of explaining them. Being distinctive on two sides is great. Costing more than other flags is a “so what.”

When I was a young lieutenant in Vietnam, I wrote to Governor Tom McCall and asked for an Oregon flag. I received a flag along with a letter from him and a letter from Secretary of State Clay Myers. I still have all three.
