Minnesota State Flag
It was 1893 and Minnesota was without a state flag. Each of the 44 states was invited to enter an exhibit at the Chicago World's Fair, a flag was needed right away.
 
The Minnesota Women's Auxiliary sponsored a flag design contest, awarding Amelia Hyde Center $15 for her prize-winning design. Norwegian immigrants Pauline and Thomane Fjelde stitched the first flag.
 
Featured on the original design, and still on the flag today, is a farmer plowing a field near the Mississippi River, with his axe in a tree stump. These images symbolize three resources that were vital to the state's development, grain, water, and timber.
