Standard sizes for outdoor state flags are 2x3 ft, 3x5 ft, 4x6 ft, 5x8 ft. and 6x10 ft.

Extra large outdoor nylon Maine flags are offered in 8x12 ft, 10x15 ft and 12x18 ft. Production process includes a #10 white nylon rope is sewn into the 2” cotton polyester blend header. Galvanized metal thimble ends are crimped to the rope ends for attachment to the flag snaps. An additional brass grommet is placed midway on the heading for use with a third flag snap for durability and stability on the halyard.

FLAG DESCRIPTION / HISTORY
Year Adopted: 1909
State emblem on a blue field; above is a gold five pointed "North star" and a red scroll bearing the state motto "Dirigo" (Latin) meaning "I Lead"; another scroll beneath the emblem is spelled out "MAINE". The colors for the coat of arms / state emblem are not officially prescribed. Maine was a district of Massachusetts until it was admitted as the 23rd state in 1820. Prior to 1920, the state flag consisted of a New England style green pine tree with a single blue north star on a colonial buff background.

Maine State Seal, flag crest

The Great Seal of the State of Maine (formally adopted 1919)
The seal of the State shall be a shield, argent, charged with a pine tree (americana, quinis ex uno folliculo setis) with a moose (cervus alces), at the foot of it, recumbent; supporters: on dexter side, a husbandman, resting on a scythe; on sinister side, a seaman, resting on an anchor.

In the foreground, representing sea and land, and under the shield, shall be the name of the State in large Roman capitals, to wit: MAINE. 

The whole shall be surrounded by a crest, the North Star. The motto, in small Roman capitals, shall be in a label interposed between the shield and crest, viz.: -- DIRIGO. (ref; maine.gov.sos)

Maine Ensign State Ensign
A revised pine tree style flag exists currently as the official state ensign or marine flag, being the only state other than Massachusetts that has one. It is a white flag adopted in 1939, consisting of the earlier pine tree /north star design, though entwined with a blue anchor across the trunk of the tree. Spelled above is the state motto "Dirigo", and underneath "Maine". This flag is available custom, made to order in either print or sewn.
