The official Maine State flag adopted in 1820 featured the state seal centered on a field of blue. States and countries often sanction multiple flag options, and in 1901, the Maine Legislature adopted this updated and simplified flag. The flag includes two elements of the State seal, the white pine tree and the North Star.
