The flag of Utah was officially adopted in 1913. It contains the crest of Utah in a gold circle on a dark, navy blue background. A bald eagle, the national bird of the US represents the protection of America. The arrows in the eagle's talons represent courage in war. The sego lily, the Utah state flower, represents peace. The state motto "industry" represents progress, hard work, and community as does the emblem of the beehive. The crossed Union flags show Utah's support and commitment to the United States. The name, Utah, appears underneath the beehive. The date 1847 represents the year Brigham Young led the first Mormons into the state. 1896 represents the year that Utah was admitted to the Union. The gold circle around the state seal represents eternal order. The shield underneath the bald eagle represents common defense. Show some pride with this flag. 3' x 5'
