Minnesota - Flag Facts

The flag of Minnesota was established in 1957. The flag has a royal blue background with the Minnesota state seal in the center. Surrounding the seal are several circles:

  • The outer circle is white with 19 gold stars (positioned to appear like a 5-pointed star), symbolizing that Minnesota was the 19th state to enter the Union after the original 13. (Minnesota was actually the 32nd state to join the Union.)
  • The largest star at the top of the circle represents the North Star and the State of Minnesota
  • The word MINNESOTA appears in red at the bottom

The circle inside the white circle has a blue background and within the blue circle are three dates in gold:

  • At the top, 1858 is the year of statehood
  • On the left, printed on a red ribbon is 1819, the year Fort Snelling was established
  • On the right, printed on a red ribbon is 1893,the year the original flag was adopted

Intertwined with the ribbons with the dates, are pink and white lady slippers, the state flower.

The third inner circle is the state seal.
