SAINT PAUL, MN – Rep. Kristin Robbins (R-Maple Grove) is encouraging members of the public to submit their ideas for the re-design of the state flag and seal. A law passed during the 2023 legislative session authorized the creation of a new Minnesota state flag and seal. The State Emblems Redesign Commission has been established to oversee this process.
“I have had many constituents ask about why the State Flag is being re-designed and how they can share their thoughts,” said Rep. Robbins. “If you are interested in sharing your views on the potential redesign of the state flag, I would encourage you to participate in the public comment process.”
Starting October 3, members of the public can submit their flag and seal designs online at www3.mnhs.org/serc-submission. They can also submit designs by mail to the State Emblems Redesign Commission, ATTN: Lindsey Dyer, 345 W Kellogg Blvd, Saint Paul, MN 55102. Submissions will be open until Monday, October 30, at 11:59pm.
The commission will choose 5 flag and seal finalists from the public submissions. The commission will then work with a professional design firm to create the new state flag and seal. More information can be found www3.mnhs.org/serc.
