Massachusetts flag has a white background, which originates from the military flag. On it is depicted Massachusetts seal, which shows an Indian from the Massachuset tribe. He holds a bow in one hand and an arrow pointing down in the other, representing the will for peace. In the corner to the left above him is a silver five-pointed star representing Massachusetts as the 13 founding state. Below him in gold lettering, in a blue banner in Latin is the motto: 'Ense petit placidam sub libertate quiezem.', (With his sword he seeks quiet peace under the protection of freedom). Directly above the Indian, an arm with a sword is depicted to once again represent the first part of the motto.
The flag was adopted on March 6, 1915. Massachusetts takes its name from the Massachusett tribe of Indians.
