The Wyoming State flag reflects the history and natural beauty of the “Cowboy State”. The Wyoming flag displays a white silhouette of an American Bison in the center of a blue field with a red border. The red symbolizes the Native Americans and the blood of the pioneers who gave their lives settling the territory. The white represents the purity of the land and the uprightness of the Wyoming people. The blue denotes the color of the sky, distant mountains as well as justice and virility. The bison signifies local fauna while the seal on the bison symbolizes the custom of branding livestock.
