The Wyoming state flag depicts the silhouette of an American bison on a blue field with a red and white border. The blue field represents the color of the skies, Wyoming’s mountains, fidelity, justice and virility. The red symbolizes the Native Americans who inhabited the area and the blood of pioneers who had lost their lives settling the state. The white is a symbol of purity. The American Bison represents the local fauna, while the seal on it symbolizes the branding of livestock.
