The Minnesota State Flag is royal blue, with a gold fringe. In the center of the flag is the state seal. Around the state seal is a wreath of the state flower, the woman slipper.
Three dates are woven into the wreath 1858; the year Minnesota became a state 1819, the year Fort Snelling was established and 1893, the year the official flag was adopted.
Nineteen stars ring the wreath. The largest star represents Minnesota.
