The 1985 legislature adopted a state seal for public business, which is the same seal still used to this day on Montana’s flag. This seal includes a depiction of the Rocky Mountains, an important part of Montana’s topography and name. The seal also depicts a river to represent the state's vast stretches of beautiful natural scenery. The center of the seal features the Great Falls, an important and distinctive landmark in Montana. The plow, shovel, and pickaxe represent the state’s agriculture and mining industry. The words on the bottom ribbon are the state motto, “Oro y Plata,”  which is Spanish for “Gold and Silver.” 

Montana’s state flag is based on the flag of the First Montana infantry regiment in the Spanish-American War of 1898. This design featured a dark blue background with the state seal in the middle. This flag was adopted in 1905, but many other states had similar flags. To make this flag more distinguishable, the 1981 legislature modified the design by adding the word “Montana” above the seal.
