Montana Flag History and Meaning

The 1985 legislature adopted a seal for public business, which is the same seal still used to this day. This seal of the state includes a depiction of the Rocky Mountains, which was an important part of the state’s topography and name. The seal also depicts a river, to represent the vast stretches of natural beautiful scenery within the state. The center of the seal features the Great Falls, which is an important and distinctive landmark in Montana. The plow, shovel, and pickaxe stand for 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.” 

The flag of the state of Montana 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” to the top portion.
