Michigan’s third and current flag was adopted in 1911. It consists of the state seal on a blue field. In the seal, a moose and elk support a shield with a picture of man waving on the shores of Lake Michigan with a sun rising behind him. Inscriptions in Latin translate into “If you are seeking a pleasant peninsula, look around you,” “I will defend,” and the most famous Latin quote in the United States “E Pluribus Unum,” meaning “From one, many.” Our state flags are made from 100% SolarMax nylon. This material, developed especially for the flag industry, is engineered to resist damage from the sun’s UV rays.
