State Emblems Redesign Commission

Flag Submission Finalist


Flag Submission number: F1154

Designer Statement

Bold, simple, proprietary, and rich with symbolism, this 8-pointed motif contains a hidden North Star in the center. The 8-pointed star immediately brings to mind a snowflake, which reflects our climate and cultural resiliency. 8-pointed stars are also found in Ojibwe and Dakota star blankets, nordic Fair Isle patterns, agrarian barn quilts, and the capital rotunda itself.

The blue and green background represents a lake and wooded shoreline of the boundary waters: symbols of Minnesota’s natural resources.

This ‘starflake’ symbol is easy to reproduce, and is a unique, proprietary symbol contains a depth of meaning to Minnesota.
