Flag of Wisconsin — the symbol of one of the 50 US states.
The flag of Wisconsin is a rectangular cloth of blue color with the image of the state seal located in the center. In the middle of the seal is the inscription saying, “E Pluribus Unum” (lat. — “Out of many, one”). The original version of the flag was developed in 1863 for the Wisconsin regiments that fought in the American Civil war. In 1913, this flag became an official symbol of Wisconsin.
Having in mind the fact that many US states have a similar design of their flags — blue cloth with the state seal — the Wisconsin government decided to add an additional inscription in the middle of the symbol of their state in order to distinguish it from the other similar flags in 1980. Thus, at the top was added the name of the state in capital letters, “WISCONSIN “, and the year of 1848 was put below. This year represents the entry of Wisconsin as one of the states in the US. Although the flag is not the national symbol, it is used a lot during many public occasions in Wisconsin.
