Which state correctly matches the animal that appears on its flag?
The flag of the state of Wyoming consists of the silhouette of an American bison. In 1916, an open competition was held for the design of an official Wyoming flag. A $20 cash prize was offered for the winning design, and the contest received 37 submissions. An artist by the name of Verna Keays took first place with her design of a bison (Wyoming’s official state mammal) with the state seal branded at its center. On January 31, 1917 the new design was adopted, and signed into law.
