Flag of Maine (GIF)



Maine is a state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. Its capital is Augusta, and its largest city is Portland; its population is about 1,336,000, and its area is 35,380 mi².

The Maine flag consists of a state coat of arms centered on a dark blue field. The center of the seal is a shield adorned with a deer sitting in an area surrounded by water and trees. A farmer on the left side of the shield rests on his scythe, and a sailor on the right leans on an anchor. A farmer and a sailor represent traditional devotion to agriculture and the sea. And the stylized North Star, above the shield, represents the state slogan: Dirigo ("I Lead"). The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 26:33, and the flag was adopted on June 16, 1909.
