The Patrol's Flying Wheel Emblem


As the Ohio State Highway Patrol was being established in 1933, the responsibility for badge design fell into the hands of Harry Neal, who in turn assigned the task to Mr. Joseph Goldberg, an engineer in Neal's Safety Department. The badge design was partially inspired by a study of others, but the "Flying Wheel" was originally Goldberg's idea. Though he had difficulty selling the flying wheel to Neal (who jokingly asked if they were duck, chicken, or eagle wings), Goldberg had created our symbol.

The Flying Wheel, which is a federally registered trademark, is now one of the most distinguishable images of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
