Oklahoma Academic Standard 1. The student will analyze the traits of good citizens.

Objective 1.3 Describe the historical significance of the symbols of Oklahoma including the Oklahoma State Seal and the Oklahoma Flag; explain how the name of Oklahoma is derived from the Choctaw language.

In a Nutshell

Students should continue their examination of how symbols are used to unite people, including an understanding of the imagery on our state seal and what these images represent about our state’s past, its resources, and its people. Students should also explore the origin and appropriateness of our state’s name as reflective of our historical roots and multicultural population.

Teacher Action 

Student Action 

  • Assist students in the identification of civic virtues and democratic principles such as equality and fairness as represented in state symbols. 

  • Ask and respond to enduring essential questions related to the purpose and use of symbols by a society.

Key Concepts 


  • symbolism, seal, lyric, cultural traditions, anthem

  • role of symbols in the transference of history, identity,  and unity between generations

  • Some students may not grasp the concept of symbolism and that an object might represent multiple ideas or principles. 

  • A common misunderstanding is that the state flag does not merit the same appropriate and respectful behavior and treatment as the national flag.
