Maine - Flag Facts
Maine entered the United States on March 15, 1820 as the 23rd state, a part of the Missouri Compromise.
On March 21, 1901, the first State of Maine flag was a pine tree in the center of a buff colored background and a blue polar star. On February 23, 1909, however, the state adopted a new flag:
- The background is American flag blue.
- Maine’s coat of arms is in the center, displaying symbols of Maine’s natural resources:
- A pine tree (The nickname, The Pine Tree state, was given to Maine for the extensive pine forests that cover the state.)
- A moose, Maine’s official state animal, is lying at the base of the pine tree
- Above the coat of arms shines the North Star, a symbol of guidance and direction.
- Maine’s motto: "DIRIGO” (I lead, or I direct) is also included with the North Star.
- To the left of the shield a farmer is holding a scythe, symbolizing Maine’s agricultural roots.
- To the right of the shield is a sailor leaning on an anchor to symbolize Maine’s strong ties to the sea.
- Below the coat of arms is a light blue banner with the word MAINE in capital letters.
