Empowering Communities, Celebrating Minnesota Locally

New Flag/Seal to be Officially Adopted

The new designs for the Minnesota state flag and seal will be officially adopted and displayed at government buildings on Statehood Day on Saturday, May 11.

The estimated 120 state flags at the state Capitol complex will be among the first to be raised.

Local governments will be able to make the adjustment on their own time.

Reports indicate some people have already put the new banner up outside their houses, but others flying the old flag in protest.
