Trivia but not film trivia....

In 1971, Oregon became the last state to have this.  It still does, and remains unique among the states in this respect...

Heh!  Such a good answer, I want to give it to you. 

Hint:  Oregon shares this attribute with the nation of Paraguay.  (which is the only current nation to have this) (and may or may not have shattered and decaying remains of famous Nazis)

By all reports, there is only a pair o' them.

My guess is having a flag with two different sides.  Oregon has the state seal on the front, and a golden beaver on the back.  Try making a pun out of THAT, Limey.

The Beaver should be on the front.

I'm not a guay....

I will note that the Beavers are located in Corvallis, which means "heart of the valley."  The mascot is Benny Beaver, and fans are sometimes called Beaver Believers, or said to be afflicted with "Beaver Fever."  The rival Ducks at OU in Eugene sometimes favor expressions of derision like "Buck the Fevers." 

By convention, the front of the flag is that side on which the hoist is to the left, which means the beaver has the hoist to the right.  In any case, the beaver is often seen to be flapping in the wind.  The potential for sexual innuendos asymptotically approaches infinity.
