Ted Kaye recently completed the entry of the flag the Chinook tribe, based in Washington, with members in Oregon. From his entry:
Adopted January, 2003, the flag places a stylized Chinook salmon in the style of Northwest Coast Indian art in black and red on a field of white. Centered on its stomach are the contours of a human face.
The flag’s salmon image is the tribe’s logo, designed by Tony Johnson. An accomplished artist and canoe carver, he also led the Cultural Affairs Committee which adopted the flag.
