The Massachusetts flag features the state’s coat of arms. This blue coat-of-arms consists of a Native American archer holding a bow and arrow. The arrow is held downward to symbolize peace. Next to the archer is a white star representing Massachusetts’ entry into the union as the 6th state. Below the coat of arms is a ribbon with the state motto in Latin. This motto means, “By the sword, we seek peace, but peace only under liberty.” Above the coat of arms is an arm holding a sword with the blade upwards. This symbol is a reminder of the American Revolution and the liberty won from it.
