Coat of arms of Michigan on a blue field
The Michigan flag was first unfurled at the laying of the cornerstone at the monument of the Soldiers' National Cemetery at Gettysburg on the Fourth of July, 1865.
By Act 209 of 1911, the State of Michigan flag was adopted with a simple phrase, "The State Flag shall be blue charged with the arms of the state."
The state flag-Michigan's third since becoming a state in 1837-features the coat of arms showing an eagle holding an olive branch and arrows. An elk and a moose support a shield displaying a man standing on a grassy peninsula. The following mottos appear on the coat of arms: E Pluribus Unum (From Many, One), Tuebor (I Will Defend), and Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice (If you Seek a Pleasant Peninsula, Look About You).Michigan's State Motto:
"Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice"
"If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you."
This statement holds many truths. Michigan is a land of great splendors. Full of natural beauty, historical importance, and citizens full of hope and energy as we enter into a new millennium. Michigan is also a place of economic opportunities, with Michigan gaining recognition as being the state with the newest plants or expansion projects for the third year in a row. So, relocating or starting a business in Michigan is a smart choice.
Michigan's pledge of allegiance to the state flag was written by Harold G. Coburn and was officially adopted as Public Act 165 of 1972.
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of Michigan, and to the state for which it stands, two beautiful peninsulas united by a bridge of steel, where equal opportunity and justice to all is our ideal."
