Let it fly: Minnesota officially has a new flag

The State Emblems Redesign Commission made its final edits to the new state flag. The banner will go up in May unless lawmakers intervene.

I'm not a fan of how much the design was changed (i.e., the fact that they just completely got rid of the stripes), but it's still a pretty solid flag!


Very nice. More nice flags instead of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flag_of_Provo,_Utah_(1989%E2%80%932015).svg.


Very pretty. But without the stripes, I think I own a pair of swimming trunks that look just like that.


I think you’re on to something. These flag-inspired swimming trunks will sell like hotcakes hotdish in the Twin Cities come summer!




Agreed, the stripes are an unfortunate loss, but I’m pleased they didn’t use the “M shaped” star orientation and instead went for the star pointing north. Neither were from the original submission, but overall, the commission’s work will massively elevate the MN flag. Can’t wait to buy myself a small one for home.


It looks like the new flag can be preordered from this seller. Although I might wait until the state legislature indicates it won’t oppose the design.

not just a star pointing north, but one made of four Ms.
