The State of Oregon

Oregon was formally made part of the United States in 1846 and Oregon was admitted as the 33rd state in 1859. That same year, a 33rd star was added to the national flag. The origins of the name Oregon are not known officially but one theory is that it comes from a French word ouragan which means hurricane. Another theory is the name refers to a mythical river of the west Ouragon. Oregon’s state nickname is the Beaver State. The capital city of Oregon is Salem and its largest city is Portland. Oregon is the only state flag to carry two separate designs featuring a beaver on its reverse side. Oregon contains over 106.000 miles of rivers and streams and over 75 major lakes. At 98,000 square miles, there is a population of 4 million and Oregon is the 27th most populous U.S. state. The Beaver State has 36 counties, and the largest cities are:
-Portland  with almost 600,000 residents
