FLAG MAINE 12"X18" NYLON 1' X 1.5'
HM Order #: 108626
Although a second Maine state flag was adopted in 1901, this flag is rarely seen. This flag shows a pine tree in the center of a buff background, with the North Star in blue within the canton. The first and almost exclusively still-used flag features the state seal of 1820. The design shows the White Pine state tree with an indigenous moose beneath it on a shield. On either side of the shield are a farmer and a sailor, depicting Maine's agricultural and maritime bases. The North Star indicates that Maine was the northernmost state when it joined the Union. The state motto Dirigo meaning I direct is above the shield, the state name is below.
