Alexa teaches us the history of Wyoming’s state flag. In the middle of flag is a giant bison. Similar to a buffalo, the bison is known as the monarch of the plains and pays homage to the cattle ranchers of Wyoming. Contained within the bison is a seal which depicts a cowboy and a miner. Right above the cowboy and miner is a banner that reads, “Equal Rights.” The phrase “Equal Rights” refers to Wyoming’s history of having been the first territory to allow women to vote and hold public office.
