									                 Starting at the top of a shield on a dark blue field is the state motto "Forward". Below it is a badger the state animal. A
            sailor and miner show that the people work on water and land. The shield in the center shows Wisconsin's support for the
            United States. In four sections surrounding the shield are representations of the states main industries: agriculture, mining,
            manufacturing and navigation. The cornucopia and pile of lead represent farm products and minerals. The flag law was
            amended in 1979 to include the name of the state and the date of statehood. Get this Flag
