Minnesota Flag History
Adopted: August 2, 1983
Minnesota Flag Design: State seal on a medium blue field
Designed by Amelia Hyde Center
The Minnesota Flag was adopted by the Legislature in 1893 when it accepted the design submitted by Amelia Hyde Center of Minneapolis.
Minnesota state flag depicts the state seal on a blue background. The seal shows a pioneer plowing the virgin prairie and an American Indian on horseback. At the top of the seal is the state motto, "L'Etoile du Nord," or star of the north. Three dates on the flag signify the establishment of historic Fort Snelling in 1819, the acceptance of Minnesota as a state in 1858 and the adoption of the state flag in 1893.
The 19 stars in the flag symbolize Minnesota as the 19th state to be admitted to the Union after the orginal 13. The largest of these stars is centered above the seal to symbolize the north star state.
The orginal flag had two sides, blue on one side and white on the other. But because the flag was so expensive to make, and because it was easily damaged in high winds, the Legislature adopted the onesided, all-blue design in 1957. The idea was to produce the Minnesota flag more cheaply to urge people to display it in preparation for the state's centennial in 1958.
