Change the State Flag and Seal

RESOLVE PROVIDING FOR THE CREATION OF A SPECIAL COMMISSION RELATIVE TO THE SEAL AND MOTTO OF THE COMMONWEALTH H.2776, S1877

This resolution will form a commission to redesign the state flag, seal, and motto, which currently depict the conquest of Massachusetts from Native Americans.

For many years, the state flag and seal of Massachusetts has been a source of controversy. It is seen by many Native people, and by other residents as an offensive symbol of white supremacy and the historical oppression of Native people in Massachusetts and our nation as a whole.
