Ohio cherishes the Northern Cardinal as its state bird, known for its vibrant red plumage and melodious songs that enliven the state's forests and backyards. Adding to Ohio's natural beauty is the Scarlet Carnation, the state flower, symbolizing passion and resilience in its striking petals. Standing tall across the landscape is the Buckeye Tree, a species that has stood for centuries in Ohio's woodlands, representing strength, longevity, and a deep-rooted connection to the state's history.
