Statesman Tie’s Ohio tie was designed to represent the flag of Ohio. This is a tie that can be worn at any time for any occasion.
“The Ohio Burgee is the official flag of the U.S. state of Ohio. Ohio’s swallowtail flag is the only non-rectangular U.S. state flag. Its red, white, and blue elements symbolize the state’s natural features and order of admission into the Union. A prominent disc in the flag’s triangular canton is suggestive of the state’s name.
The flag was designed in 1901 by John Eisenmann for the Pan-American Exposition and adopted in 1902. Ironically, the Pan-American Exposition would be where President William McKinley, a native of Niles, Ohio, was assassinated. Before that, for nearly a century after statehood, Ohio had no legally authorized state flag. One unsuccessful proposal called for a design based on the state seal.
Ohio has adopted an official salute to the flag and a 17-step procedure for folding it.” (Source: here)
The Ohio tie design was kind of tricky to design. We wanted the tie to be very representative of the flag as well as something that was classy and not crazy. The swallowtail portion of the flag is very unique and would have been great to use in the tie somehow, but we couldn’t get it to look right. As well, the triangle portion of the flag needed to be used to identify the tie as the Ohio tie. Making the triangle logo small like a lot of our other logos wouldn’t have worked because it would have been too small to clearly see the already miniature stars incorporated in the design. So, we made the triangle a little bigger and overlaid it on top of the red and white stripes. We hope you like the final product.
The Ohio tie is a great gift for missionaries, businessmen, and anyone who loves Ohio. You can even add a personalized embroidered message on the back on the tie that the wearer will be sure to love! We hand-sew each tag onto every tie.
Our high quality Ohio tie is made with 100% woven silk and measures 61″ long x 2.5″ wide.
