Utah Flag History
Adopted: February 16, 2011
Utah Flag Design: The Utahn coat of arms encircled in a golden circle with the number "1896" written in white text with Arabic numerals, on a field of dark navy blue.
Each state in the country has customarily adopted a state Flag. Since the colonial Days of 1775 each state designed their flags to help distinguish the ideas and tradition of that particular state. The Great Seal of the State of Utah is centered on a blue background. The original Utah State Flag was adopted by the State Legislature in 1896 and revised in 1913. The beehive on the shield stands for hard work and industry. The date 1847 is the year the Mormons came to Utah. A bald eagle, the United States national bird, perches atop the shield and symbolizes protection in peace and war. The sego lily is a symbol of peace and a U.S. flag appears on each side, symbolizing Utah's support to the nation. The Utah State Flag, as we know it today, was originally designed for the battleship Utah in 1912. It was later made the official flag of Utah when Governor William Spry signed House Joint Resolution I in 1913.
Utah State Flag Resolution, 2011
The Utah state flag was adopted by the Legislature in 1911, and the statute which describes the proper appearance of the state flag was passed in 1913. In 1922, changes were made in the state flag which were not consistent with the 1913 statute, and which have been perpetuated in state flags from 1922 to 2011. The Utah State Flag Concurrent Resolution (Utah State Legislature, 2011 General Session, H.C.R. 2 Enrolled), sponsored by Representative Julie Fisher and Senator Mark Madsen, reaffirmed the 1913 statute and encouraged that state flags be manufactured according to the law.
The redesigned Utah flag was first raised above the Capitol grounds on March 9, 2011, Utah State Flag Day.
