Wisconsin - Flag Facts
The state of Wisconsin was granted statehood in 1848 and became the 30th state in the union.
The Wisconsin flag was adopted in 1863 when the Civil War regiments in the field requested an official banner to carry. The flag has had several revisions with the last changes being made in 1979. The Wisconsin flag features:
- A dark blue background
- "WISCONSIN” in white above the coat of arms, added in 1979 to distinguish the flag from other states’ flags that look similar
- A white ribbon banner with the word FORWARD, the state motto
- A badger, the state animal, is shown below the ribbon and above the shield
The Wisconsin coat of arms is centered on the flag and contains a large shield, divided into 4 sections features Wisconsin’s main industries:
- The plough signifies Wisconsin’s rich soil and its agriculture
- The pick and shovel represents the primary occupation of the early settlers, lead mining
- The arm and hammer symbolizes the manufacturing industry
- The anchor symbolizes shipping as an integral aspect of Wisconsin’s economy with the Mississippi River on the west, Lake Superior on the northwest and Lake Michigan on the east
The U.S. coat of arms and the nation’s motto “E Pluribus Unum” (One of many) in the shield’s center shows Wisconsin’s support of the union.
- The sailor to the left of the shield represents the shipbuilding industry
- The miner on the left of the shield represents the mining industry and the early state settlers
- The cornucopia symbolizes prosperity and abundance
- A pyramid of 13 lead ingots represent Wisconsin's mineral wealth and the 13 original U.S. states
- The year “1848” in white letters below the coat of arms, the year Wisconsin became a state, was also added in 1979 to distinguish the flag from other states’ flags.
