Capitol Ohio : 125 - Ohio Flags Flying Over The Statehouse
Used as a "communication tool" long before telephones, email and mobile devices, the Ohio flag is raised over the Statehouse when the corresponding legislative chamber is in session - raised on the north flag pole during Ohio Senate sessions and on the south flag pole during Ohio House of Representatives sessions.

The Ohio flags fly simultaneously beneath the American flags during joint sessions such as the Governor's annual State of the State address, or when both chambers are meeting at the same time.
