This Maine flag was officially adopted is 1909. It features a centered coat of arms (adopted in 1820) on a dark blue field.
The coat of arms pictures a farmer (with scythe) and a seaman (with anchor) representing the agricultural and maritime industries.
The shield between them includes a pine tree, a moose (the state animal of Maine), green grass, a tranquil sky, and deep blue water.
At the top is a yellow star (representing the North Star, as Maine was the northernmost state when it entered the Union) and a ribbon that reads, "DIRIGO," which means "I direct" in Latin. Below, a ribbon reads, "MAINE."
