Massachusetts State Flags
Until 1908, Massachusetts had no official state flag; currently the flag is a white field with the state coat of arms in the middle. The shield itself depicts a Native American with his arrow pointing downward to signify peace. The white star signifies Massachusetts as the 6th state to be admitted to the US. The state motto surrounds the shield, reading, “by the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty.” The flag was adopted in 1908.
We're proud to offer the Massachusetts state flag in two different outdoor fabrics, including nylon for an Massachusetts flag that flies in a light wind and an extra-tough polyester Massachusetts flag designed to withstand the elements. Even our miniature 4 inch by 6 inch Massachusetts flags mounted to a plastic dowel are perfect for classroom, special events, parades and more! Looking for something for a parade or indoor application? Our indoor fringed Massachusetts flags feature luxurious gold fringe on 3 sides and a pole sleeve end for a clean look.
