The Michigan flag consists of the coat of arms of Michigan on a blue field. The coat of arms’ dark blue shield features the Sun rising over a lake and peninsula and a man holding a long gun with a raised hand, representing peace and the ability to defend his rights. The brown elk and moose are symbols of Michigan, while the bald eagle represents the United States.

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

On the red ribbon: E Pluribus Unum, "Out of many, one," a motto of the United States
On the blue shield: Tuebor, "I will defend"
On the white ribbon: “Si Quæris Peninsulam Amœnam Circumspice, "If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you," which is the official state motto. 

On the left edge of the flag is a durable canvas header with brass grommets for attaching to flagpoles.

Michigan’s began as a French colony; that became 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.

Michigan’s current state flag was adopted in 1911, featuring the state coat of arms that celebrates Michigan's geography and nature and its 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,” which is the official state motto.

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