Utah (UT) State Flag The 45th state, admitted 1896Utah flag, Utah flags, UT flag
Utah's first flag was made in 1903 from silk fibers of the native silkworms raised by local pioneer women. The stitching followed the pattern of the state seal, which was designed by Harry Edwards. The beehive stands for industry or hard work and the ambitious pioneers. Sego lilies, which were sacred to the Native Americans of the region, lie on either side of the hive and are emblems of peace. The eagle is a symbol of national pride, representing protection in peace and war. The date, 1847, refers to the year Brigham Young led a group of Mormons to the Salt Lake Valley seeking religious freedom.
