Wednesday in Wyoming -- November 4, 2015

Did you know that Wyoming celebrated 25 years of statehood this year?  In honor of that milestone, the State Museum created an exhibit with artifacts from each of the decades of statehood.  This 44-star flag, which was presented to the governor by Esther Morris, commemorates both the fact that Wyoming was the forty-fourth state to join the Union and that women played an important role in the territory being approved for statehood.

In case you can't read it, the lettering on the red stripes reads, "To Wyoming, from her women, in honor of the State Constitution, 1890."  

Here's more information about the flag's presentation.
