Missouri flag proposal - MOTX72

The proposed new flag of Missouri is a horizontal tricolor of red, white and blue. The red and white stripes, as is traditional, represent valor and purity, respectively. The blue represents three things: the permanency, vigilance, and justice of the state. The three colors also highlight the United States, as well as the French influence on the state in its early years.

In the center white stripe is an escarbuncle, encircled by a blue band containing 24 white stars, symbolizing Missouri's admission as the 24th U.S. state.  The escarbuncle & band of stars are in the middle of the flag, just as Missouri itself, is in the middle of the country. 

The escarbuncle is an heraldic emblem.  In ancient times, knights used iron bands stemming from the center and radiating outwards to strengthen the shield for better protection in battle.  Through the years, these bands were stylized into a smaller rendering, normally of eight spokes, each ending with a fleur-de-lis.  As such, the escarbuncle represents supremacy, strength, and honor.  The fleurs-de-lis within the escarbuncle again help to highlight the French influence in Missouri's early years. 

The escarbuncle's central boss and eight radiating spokes represent Missouri as a "hub" for the country - - past, present, and future.  From its very beginning, with the multitude of people and goods that have traveled back and forth, from east to west and north to south, Missouri has played, and will always continue to play, a central role in the dreams, strength, welfare, and prosperity of this great country.
