The present Minnesota flag was designed in 1957, and has the state seal on a blue field. The Lady Slipper, the state flower, runs around the white circle around the seal which features a landscape with a Native American riding past a farmer cultivating his field. A scroll containing the state motto, “Letiole du Nord” (“Star of the North”), nineteen stars representing Minnesota as the nineteenth state, and the year of its statehood, 1858, complete the state seal.
