Description

Michigan State Flag & Coat of Arms. The present flag—Michigan’s third since becoming a state in 1837—was adopted in 1911. The state's first flag featured a portrait of Michigan's first governor, Stevens T. Mason, on one side. On the other side was the state coat of arms and "a soldier and a lady." In 1865, the state flag changed to display the state coat of arms on one side and the United States coat of arms on the other side. Today's Michigan flag is a field of blue with the state coat of arms at its center.
At the top of the coat of arms, also adopted in 1911, is an eagle holding an olive branch and arrows. An elk and a moose support a shield displaying a man standing on a grassy peninsula. The following mottos appear on the coat of arms: E Pluribus Unum (From Many, One), Tuebor (I Will Defend) and Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice (If You Seek a Pleasant Peninsula, Look About You).
