Best Answer

North Dakota's official nickname, as adopted by the state legislature, is the Peace Garden State because the International Peace Garden is located on the border between North Dakota and Canada.

North Dakota is known as the Flickertail state after the popular name of the Richardson's Ground Squirrel and the Roughrider State because of the first US Volunteer Cavalry which was organized by Theodore Roosevelt to fight in the Spanish American War.
