Washington, aka the Evergreen State, is known for its lush forests, majestic mountains, and vibrant cities. Washington’s flag displays a green field behind the state seal depicting an image of George Washington.
Here’s a few fun facts:
- Did you know the state of Washington is the largest apple producer in the US, and one of the largest in the world?
- The longest floating bridge in the world is the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge in Seattle, with a length of 7,710 feet.
- In 1969, Skamania County created ordinance 1969-01, a law that banned people from killing Bigfoot should they ever find it. If they did, it would be considered a felony, and the killer would be charged with five years in prison.
May the spirit of the Evergreen State continue to flourish!
