Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap introduced the design (pictured) chosen for Maine’s bicentennial commemorative flag, to be displayed statewide through 2020. Secretary Dunlap will present the final design to the State and Local Government Committee, which directed him to create it via Legislative Resolve Chapter 22 “To Create a Flag To Recognize the Bicentennial of the State.” He will then put the flag forward to the Maine’s Bicentennial Commission for formal adoption as the official flag of the state’s bicentennial commemoration. The bicentennial flag is intended to be flown during the commemoration of Maine’s 200th anniversary of statehood and is not a replacement for the current State of Maine flag.
