Historical State Flag of Minnesota History

Minnesota’s original flag was designed by Amelia Hyde Center in 1893. This flag featured a white field bearing the state seal, the name of the state, and nineteen stars since Minnesota was the 19th state to join the union. The other side of the flag was plain blue. This flag was seldom used due to manufacturing difficulties involving quality. 

A new design was established in 1957, where the central design appeared on both sides of the flag. In 1983, modifications were made to the state seal, so the flag had to change again. This flag remained the state flag until 2024, when a new Minnesota flag was chosen by the State Emblem Redesign Commission.
