Minnesota lawmakers are considering making changes to the state’s flag and seal. House Democrats are moving forward with legislation to create a 14-member commission to study new designs to recommend to the legislature. Change supporters say flag isn’t recognizable outside the state and that parts of the seal could be offensive to Native Americans. The flag must contain an image of the state seal by law.
