The Flag

The Seneca-Cayuga of Oklahoma use a light blue flag. Centered on this flag is a large white disk with SENECA-CAYUGA TRIBE in black across the top, and OF OKLAHOMA below that, all in black. At the center of the disk is the "great tree", a symbol sacred to all Iroquois (Annin & Co.). Surrounding this is a bear claw necklace, a symbol of strength and power. Ringing the necklace are thirteen animal shapes in black outline, yellow, or tan. These totems, representing certain admirable and desirable traits, symbolize thirteen tribal clans. Counter-clockwise from the upper left are: Wolf, Squirrel, Hawk, Eel, Heron, Beaver, Bear, Hare, Porcupine, Snake, Snipe, Turtle, and Deer. These represent all eight New York Seneca clans and five Cayuga clans.
