State of North Dakota Flag
State of North Dakota Flag
- Year First Flown: 1911
- Designed By: Colonel John H. Fraine and the Official Flag Commission
- Design: A blue flag with a modified version of the U.S. coat of arms placed in the center, a banner with the name "North Dakota" on it, and another banner with the motto "e pluribis unum" printed on it. The coat of arms consists of an eagle, a shield with 13 red and white stripes, an olive branch, a cluster of arrows, 13 stars, and rays radiating out from the stars in the shape of a sun.
- Meaning: The 13 strips and 13 stars represent the original 13 colonies of the United States, and the eagle is the national bird of the United States. The eagle holds an olive branch in one claw and a bunch of arrows in the other claw, which represents the power of peace and war. The rays that emanate from the 13 stars symbolize how influence reaches far past the physical boundaries of the country. The motto on the ribbon held in the eagle's beak translates to "From Many, one". This is an important phrase for the United States of America, and refers to the creation of one nation from multiple smaller states.
History of the Flag
North Dakota first joined the union and became one of the United States of America on November 2nd, 1889. Many other American states took quite a bit of time to design and adopt an official state flag, but North Dakota only waited about twenty years. In 1911, Colonel John H. Fraine submitted a proposal to the North Dakota Legislation to adopt an official state flag. John H. Fraine was born in England, but moved to North Dakota when he was a young boy. Fraine became a lawyer and a Colonel in the 1st World War, and grew to love his state and his country enough to devote his life and career to them. Colonel Fraine served in the North Dakota House of Representatives between 1909 and 1914, where he became the Speaker of the House in 1913 and the Lieutenant Governor from 1915-1916. Fraine's flag resolution proposed a flag that would copy the color, size, and design of the flag carried by the North Dakota Infantry during the Spanish American War. The North Dakota legislature agreed and only made one small change in order to add that name "North Dakota" below the eagle's feet. On March 3rd, 1911, the flag was officially adopted by the Legislative Assembly and became the North Dakota State Flag.
