The flag of Pennsylvania has been in use since
1799 but was officially adopted in 1907. The flag contains a blue
field and the states coat of arms in the center. On the coat of
arms there is a depiction of a ship, a plow and three sheaves of wheat indicating the importance of commerce,
labor, perseverance and agriculture. Under the coat of arms there
is a stack of Indian corn on the left and an olive branch to the right to symbolize the state past and its
aspirations for the future. Under the coat of arms is a banner that
reads “Virtue, Liberty and Independence” which is the states motto.
To the left and right side of the shield there are two draft horses supporting the coat of arms. At the top is a bald eagle representing the states loyalty to the United
Other State Flags in the U.S.A.
