The current state flag of Vermont was officially adopted on June 1, 1923, and consists of the state's coat of arms on a field of azure along the state name and motto, "Freedom and Unity", in white on a red ribbon. The motto balances the two main ideals of the state, the freedom of the individual and the welfare of the common good. The state seal is supported on both sides by pine branches with pine needles, representing the small pine branches worn at the battle of Plattsburgh during the War of 1812. The state seal has a shield with a pine tree in the center representing the state's forests. Under the pine tree stands a cow and 3 sheaves of wheat, which represent the strong Vermont industries of dairy and agriculture while behind the pine tree the Green Mountains are shown. On top of the shield sits a deer's head showing the wildlife of Vermont.
The Vermont State flag has multiple variations and versions throughout the state's history. The original state flag was the same flag as the flag of the Green Mountain Boys. Later it was changed to look similar to the National Flag of the United States, only to later once again be changed to avoid confusion with the US Flag.
Proposals emerge in the state to revert the flag back to its original state flag of the Green Mountain Boys; however, no bill has been successful.
