A hundred years ago, Marie Oliver made a paper flag for Missouri and her paper flag was beautiful. 

In that flag was a bear, to represent the strength and bravery of the Missourians. And a crescent moon, to symbolize the huge potential of the new small state. The hope. The courage. The future of a home carved out from the Louisiana Purchase. Shame that Oliver’s paper flag burned just three years later in a fire in the Capitol building. We couldn’t do the full thing justice, but thought we’d take some bits and make a print. A new paper flag for Missouri.

Beautiful design & high quality

Received this as a gift, and I'm thrilled with it. I'm proud to be able to hang something that represents my state well, and the design looks simply fantastic. High quality, to the point that I purchased another Old Try print when I saw how good it looked. Would recommend.

Five stars and nothing less

This was our second purchase from The Old Try. Their prints make for such a warm welcome in our Atlanta home. Each product is made in the US and made with intention. The company (Micah) is super thorough in communicating order & shipping information (and awesome follow-up emails). Love this'un and all the rest! Thanks again!
