Background knowledge

The flag of Maine shows its seal on a blue background. The seal depicts a moose under a fir tree, with a farmer and a sailor standing next to it. They represent the work that settlers had to do in the past. The fir tree is supposed to reflect shipbuilding. Below the seal, in a blue banner, is the name Maine. Above the two men is a star, this indicated Maine as a former northern state. Directly below the star, in white lettering in a red banner, is the word 'Dirigo' (I lead). Maine's flag was adopted in 1909.

The name Maine was in honor of Henrietta Maria, kings of Charles I of England. It is said that she owned the province of Maine.
