Minnesota is a state located in the Upper Midwest region of the United States. It is bordered by Canada to the north, Wisconsin to the east, Iowa to the south, and North Dakota and South Dakota to the west. The capital city of Minnesota is St. Paul, while its largest city is Minneapolis.

The new flag design to represent the state’s shared history, resources and diverse cultural communities was adopted on May 11, 2024. It replaces a flag with the state seal displayed on a medium blue field.

The bark blue represents the night sky and also the shape of the state, the bright blue area relates to the 11,842 lakes, 6,564 rivers and streams found here, while the star represents the North Star, or “L’étoile du Nord,” which is Minnesota’s state motto.

The previous flag featured a royal blue field with the state seal prominently displayed in the center. The state seal depicts a landscape with a farmer and a Native American, representing the state’s agricultural and indigenous heritage.
