It took almost fifty years for lawmakers to admit Utah as an official member of the union. In the autumn of 1895 a constitution was approved, which included granting women the right to vote (one of the first such concessions in the nation). Several months later, on January 4, 1896, Utah was admitted as the 45th state in the union. Celebrate your state's history by displaying state symbols, animals, and state flags.
