Picture image of the Michigan State Flag
The state flag of Michigan was adopted in 1911. The
flag contains a dark blue field with the state's coat of arms in the center. On the coat of arms there is a light blue shield with a lake and a man
standing on the bank holding a long gun to symbolize peace and the ability to defend his rights. To the sides holding the shield is a moose and an elk which are two of the
animals found in Michigan. The bald eagle at the very top
symbolizes the United States. At the bottom there is a symbol
that reads in Latin “Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice (If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about
you). On the shield the Latin word “Tuebor” (I will defend) appears and above the eagle is a red banner
that reads “E Pluribus Unum” (One of many, one) which is a motto of the United States.
