The state flag was adopted in 1913.
The state flower is the sego lily or mariposa lily. The sego lily blooms in June and early July on plains and hillsides.
The California sea gull
In Utah it
is simply known as the sea gull. The California sea gull is honored
because when the huge herds of grasshoppers started eating the crops, the
sea gulls swooped down and ate the grasshoppers.
The blue spruce is not truly blue, but some of these do have a blue green tint. The blue spruce grows high in Utah's mountains. It grows both in small groves and as scattered, individual trees.
