The design adopted in 1911 is still used today, and it was the 3rd state flag designed for Michigan. The very first original flag depicted a portrait of Michigan’s first governor, Stevens T. Mason on one side and the state coat of arms on the other. The first flag, unfortunately, was completely lost and no images of it exist as far as records show to this date. The second version of the Michigan state flag, adopted in 1865, displayed the state’s coat of arms on one side and the United State’s coat of arms on the other. Today’s version of the Michigan state flag has the seal of the state on a brilliant blue field. The depiction of the Elk and the Moose to either side of a shield that says: Tuebor, (I will Defend) represent the state’s animals, and the eagle with wings spread above represents the United States. At the top of the shield reads: E pluribus Unum: From Many, One (as our nation was made from many different states.) The bottom white ribbon reads: Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam, Circumspice: If you see a pleasant peninsula, look about you.
