The Massachusetts flag has a blue, gold and white design on a white field. The state seal appears in the middle, and has an Indian in gold on a blue shield with a white star representing the United States above it. Above the shield is a crest with an arm holding sword, below it is a scroll containing the state motto “Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem” (“by the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty.”) Our state flags are made from 100% SolarMax nylon.
