History and Symbolism of the Historic Minnesota Flag
Minnesota's historic flag can be traced back to a flag design contest held in 1893. The winning design, used as Minnesota’s official state flag until 2024, features a royal blue field with the state’s seal in the center. There are three dates inscribed on the flag; 1819, the date Fort Snelling, Minnesota’s first settlement, was established; 1858, the date Minnesota received official statehood; and 1893, the date the flag was created. The flag makes heavy use of symbolism, including:
- The waterfall representing St. Anthony Falls
- The blue background representing loyalty and blue waters
- A farmer and plow representing the state’s agricultural roots
- The phrase “L'Étoile du Nord,” French for “The Star of the North,” the state’s motto
- A mounted Native American to represent the state’s cultural heritage
- The state flower, lady’s slippers
- Pine trees to represent the state tree
Despite the flag's complexity and rich symbolism, the North American Vexillological Association (NAVA) put Minnesota within the top 10 worst flag designs in their 2001 survey. Criticism eventually led Minnesota to finalize a new official design in 2024.
