State Emblems Redesign Commission

Seal Submission Finalist


Seal Submission number: S6

Designer Statement

“L’etoile du Nord” ribbon inspired by the photo on SOS website for the state motto.

Elements taken from current seal to incorporate some continuity. Wording, Borders, State admission year.

Blue: Minisota’ Sky-tinted water: The land of 10,000 lakes. The Great Lakes begin in Duluth. The Mighty Mississippi is formed in our state. If any state has a case to have a blue flag, it is Minnesota.

The Directional Star: The North Star. If you follow the North Star, you will end up in Minnesota. Gold represents the rich resources of the land.

The Snowflake: Winter We embrace it. Put on a sweater and stay warm. As a bonus this is also the shape of the star on the floor in the rotunda of the Capitol building in Saint Paul.
