Michigan began as a French colony and became a British territory in the 1700s. The British ownership was short-lived and became United States territory after the American Revolution. Finalizing Michigan’s territory and borders was lengthy; Michigan was finally incorporated into the Union in 1837 as the 26th state.

The current state of Michigan flag was adopted in 1911, featuring the coat of arms that celebrates Michigan's geography, nature, and history as a frontier state.

The design features three Latin mottos. From top to bottom, they are: 

  1. "E Pluribus Unum" means "Out of many, one," a United States motto.
  2. "Tuebor" means "I will defend."
  3. "Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice" means "If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you,” the official state motto.

The elk and moose featured in the coat of arms are state symbols of Michigan, and the bald eagle represents the United States.
