The next flag of Minnesota has been selected. The State Emblems Redesign Commission voted for a final design that includes the conceptual shape of Minnesota in dark blue and the rest of the flag in light blue. The flag has a single eight-pointed star pointed north on the shape of Minnesota.
On Tuesday, the Commission voted on modifications to the original submission known as F1953. Those modifications included the symmetry of the shape of Minnesota, the direction of the eight pointed star, and the colors.
The State Emblems Redesign Commission was established in the 2023 legislative session to develop and adopt a new design for the official state seal and a new design for the official state flag no later than January 1, 2024.
As outlined in state legislation, the Minnesota Historical Society is providing administrative support to the State Emblems Redesign Commission.
