Background knowledge

The Michigan flag has a dark blue background with the state's seal on it. On the seal is a bald eagle, which comes from the seal of the United States. A wapiti and an elk hold the coat of arms, which features a man with a rifle and a raised hand. The rifle represents the determination to defend oneself and the raised hand represents the will for peace. The man is standing on a peninsula with the sun rising. On the seal there are still three written banners. One is in red directly above the eagle, on which is written 'E Pluribus Unum' (Out of Many One). In the coat of arms it says 'Tuebor', which translates as 'I will defend'. On the white banner just below the coat of arms it says 'Si Queris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice'. The translation is 'If you are looking for a friendly peninsula, look around!'.

In 1913 the flag was introduced. The name is derived from an Indian word 'Michi-gama' (big pond).
