Officially approved in 1905, Montana's flag is adapted from colors once used by the state militia. The motto "Gold and Silver," or "Oro Y Plata" in Spanish, recalls Spain's onetime claim to the area.
The state seal (centered) represents Montana's rugged scenery and pioneer history. The featured pick, shovel and plow are symbolic of mining and farming.
The name Montana was added in 1981.
