Michigan is a state in the Great Lakes and Midwestern regions of the United States. Its capital is Lansing and its largest city is Detroit; its population is about 9,962,000 and its area is 96,714 mi². The Michigan Flag consists of a centered state coat of arms in a dark blue field. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3 and the flag was adopted on June 26, 1911.

A man with a raised hand represents peace and represents the war for the state with a long weapon in the other. The bald eagle symbolizes the United States. There are three Latin slogans on the flag:

  • "E Pluribus Unum," means "Out of many, one," a motto of the United States.
  • "Tuebor," means "I will defend".
  • "Si Quæris Peninsulam Amœnam Circumspice," means "If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you".
