Minnesota State Flag

100% American-made Minnesota state flags

On May 11, 1858, Minnesota — formed from the eastern half of the Minnesota Territory — became the 32nd state admitted to the Union. Nearly 60% of the population live in or around the Twin Cities, Minneapolis and St. Paul, and enjoy an internationally-renowned arts scene that is bolstered by one of the nation's highest education and standard of living ratings. The 12th largest state has an enormous amount of lakes and is known to many as the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

The design of the Minnesota state flag is a contemporary representation of the state. Elements include a two-tone blue background to symbolize the state's abundance of lakes and rivers, with the deeper blue in a simplified shape of the state; and an eight-pointed North Star in white to signify Minnesota's motto "L'Étoile du Nord" (The Star of the North). The overall design embodies simplicity and elegance, paying homage to Minnesota's natural beauty and its place in the nation.
