PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS

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

Extra large outdoor nylon Massachusetts 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.

This open weave material reduces fabric stress and outside fly-end shredding in high wind applications, allowing for up to double the wear of traditional nylon flags.

FLAG DESCRIPTION / HISTORY
Currrent Flag / Year Adopted: 1908, revised 1971. The Flag of the Commonwealth is white, bearing on both sides a representation of the coat of arms like the state seal (except that the five-pointed star is white instead of silver). It was approved for the Commonwealth in its final form on July 3, 1971; before that, the obverse side depicted a green pine tree.

Massachusetts coat of arms

A white flag with a gold color Indian and a five pointed silver star on a blue shield. Above the shield is the state motto, "Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem" ("By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty") appears in gold on a blue ribbon beneath the blue shield. The blue and gold state military crest appears above the blue shield. The crest is a wreath of blue and gold, on which in gold is a right arm, bent at the elbow, clothed and ruffled, with the hand grasping a broadsword and is prescribed in the Army Institute of Heraldry. (ref; sec.state.ma.us, State Symbols)

The coat of arms is taken from the Great Seal, and was initially described in 1885.

Massachusetts was one of the original 13 colonies, ratifying the Constitution in 1788 to become the fifth U.S. State. Massachusetts had an official naval ensign during the Revolutionary War in 1776, a white pine tree flag. See, "An Appeal To Heaven". A green pine tree flag continues as an official state naval flag, minus the Appeal to Heaven motto. Massachusetts and Maine are the only states with official naval ensigns.
