MIssouri Flag Info

Centered on red, white and blue fields is the Missouri state seal. It is encircled by a blue band with twenty-four stars representing the number of states in 1821. The stars in the inner circle have the same meaning. Two huge grizzly bears support the circular shield in the center which has three parts: the right section representing the United States, the left section containing a moon representing a new state and a grizzly bear standing for courage, and the motto "United We Stand, Divided we Fall"
