The purpose of this page is to promote the use of the original Maine state flag.
Maine, the Pine Tree State, deserves a great flag. Currently, our flag is simply our state seal on a blue background. Our state seal is impressive and accurately characterizes our state, yet simply adding a seal to a blank background does not qualify as a flag. Indeed, many US state flags have done the same and our current Maine flag is indistinguishable from these other flags. Maine, the first region of the United States to witness a new day, deserves a flag which will make it stand out.
