Massachusetts Flag

The state flag of Massachusetts has been in use since the time of the American Revolution in 1776 but was not officially adopted until 1908. The flag contains a white field with the state coat of arms in the center. The coat of arms is a shield with an Algonquin Native American with a bow and arrow. The arrow is pointing down to symbolize peace. A star next to the figure's head represents Massachusetts' admission as the 6th US state. On the bottom of the shield is an inscription that reads “Ense Petot Placidam, Sub Libertate Quietem” (by the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty) which is the state motto.
