History and Meaning of the Idaho Flag

The flag of Idaho showcases the state’s Great Seal. This seal features an illustration of a miner and a female, symbolizing justice, liberty, and equality. The shield inside the seal typifies the state’s present and history. Additional symbols on the seal represent the natural resources of the state, such as farmland, forests, wildlife, and mines. 

The seal for the territory, designed by Emma Edwards Green, was first created and adopted in 1863, although it was changed multiple times before Idaho joined the union as a state in 1890. The seal was first used in a flag in 1898 when it was used as a military banner during the Spanish-American War. It wasn’t until 1907 that Idaho decided it needed a state flag. This 1907 legislation specified that the flag needed to be blue with the name of the state on it. Besides that, the Idaho Adjutant General had control over the final design. To honor the First Idaho Infantry, the Great Seal was added to the flag. At the time, the Great Seal had multiple representations, so flag designs varied. In 1957 the legislature created a law that an approved version of the Great Seal would be used on the state flag. This is the flag that is still used today.
