What Are Your Thoughts About Minnesota Getting A New State Flag?

The Minnesota State Emblems Redesign Commission announced that it received over 2,000 submissions for its call for ideas to change the state’s flag Wednesday.

The release of the potential new designs by the Minnesota State Historical Society accompanied the announcement, allowing the public to take the first look at the options the commission is considering.

The contest comes as some in the state said that the current state seal, which is featured on the flag and is also being redesigned, shows native peoples being driven off their land.

The commission stated that, “designs must accurately and respectfully reflect Minnesota’s shared history, resources, and diverse cultural communities,” and they could not include, “symbols, emblems, or likenesses that represent only a single community or person, regardless of whether real or stylized.”
