The history of the Michigan state flag shows that there have been three official flags of the state to get to the flag we see today. The original flag of the state was a picture of the state’s first governor, Steven T. Mason, and the state’s coat of arms. In 1865 the photo of the Governor was removed and the United States coat of arms was placed in his spot. Eventually the U.S. coat of arms was removed and the Michigan coat of arms was centered. This state coat of arms offers a lake with the sun rising over it and a man with his hand raised standing on a peninsula. The shield also offers an elk on one side and a moose on another, in between these two animals is another, a bald eagle with an olive branch in its talons. Above the shield reads "E Pluribus Unum" or "from many, one" and beneath the words "Tuebor" or "I will defend" and beneath that "Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice" which is in fact the state’s motto meaning "If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you." It is said that the bald eagle is to represent the United States and the elk and moose are for Michigan.
