Calling all lovers of Maine — and art

“Inner Tidal” quilted piece by Catherine Worthington.

When Maine officially became a state in 1820, the flag (with the green pine tree and the polar star in the upper corner) became the official first flag of our beloved state. In 2020, this flag was used to celebrate the 200th birthday of the state of Maine. The unique design of the flag has captured the hearts of Maine lovers everywhere and knowing the history behind it makes it even better.
