Maine State Flag

A flag is often an amalgam of anecdotes that tell the history of a state.

You will find below the description and explanation for the symbols of the flag of Maine.

The flag of Maine was adopted June 16, 1909. It consists of a blue background, which must be identical to that used on the flag of United States. On this background is drawn the seal of the State. Under the latter a light blue headband appears with the name of the state. The seal of Maine is a momentum that is lying under a pine tree. Pine is the official tree of the State of Maine. Each side of the shield are drawn two characters, a farmer (left) and marine (right). These two characters symbolize the strong farming and fishing tardition in Maine, which was its main resource for very long. Above the shield appears a polar star, quite rare on the U.S. states’ flags, and the state motto on a red headband : "Dirigo", "I lead." Maine has joined the United States on 4 July 1820. Maine is known as the "Pine tree state", and its capital is Augusta.
