The state seal that appears on the Idaho state flag was designed by Miss Emma Edwards in 1891. The star that appears in the lower part of the golden rim indicated that Idaho was a new state. The Idaho state flag was originally the state name in a blue field but was changed in March of 1927 Miss Edwards surviving original artwork. The miner in the state seal is appropriate because the well-known minerals in the state include lead, zinc, silver, gold and copper.
Our state flags are made from 200-denier, 100% SolarGuard nylon. This heavyweight nylon material, developed especially for the flag industry, is engineered to resist damage from the sun’s UV rays and still fly briskly in the lightest breeze.
Why Annin Flags?
Annin Flagmakers has been one of the most trusted names in flagmaking since the 1820s. And that makes it one of the oldest and largest manufacturers in the country. But don’t just take our word for it: Annin flags flew at the inaugurations of every President from Zachary Taylor to George W. Bush. And it was an Annin flag that draped the coffin of President Abraham Lincoln. An Annin American flag, too, was selected by NASA as part of its Apollo 11 mission to the moon in 1969.
