1901 Maine Flag — History
Why a 1901 flag? 1901 was the year Maine got its first official flag, after 81 years of statehood. The Original Maine Flag design that has become popularized with Mainers today is a nod to that original design — a simple pine tree and North Star on a light tan background. Until the resurgence of interest in this original design, Maine’s flag featured the state coat of arms on a blue field. The North Star was there with the Maine state motto, Dirigo, or “I lead”, emblazoned across it. While this design remains the official state flag, the simple pine tree and North Star design appeals to flag enthusiasts and Maine residents because its well-known symbols are easy to see from afar, and its simple, distinctive design provides a nod to tradition.
Mainers and those from away have embraced this design, and not only will you find the 1901 Original Maine Flag flying outside many homes and businesses, you’ll recognize the design on apparel, hats, and accessories. You’ll love having this traditional design on your bags, hoodies, tees, beanies, dog vests, and face masks. Choose your favorite way of paying tribute to Maine history with our distinctive design.
