The explanatory post appears to have disappeared. My take was that the lacrosse equipment was a tip of the hat to Johns Hopkins University, whose lacrosse team has won 9 NCAA National Championships, second only to Syracuse's 10.

Swedish flag for MN? And what does basketball have to do with Indiana? My mind jumped to MA, being where it was invented.

Minnesota has more Swedes and more Norwegians than any other state. It has about 50% more Norwegians than Swedes. Minensota has the highest percentage of Swedes of any state, but it is second to North Dakota in percentage of Norwegians.

Google tells me that Minnesota has the largest Swedish population in the US. Which admittedly is the only reason I got that answer.

Level 65
Oct 31, 2018
I, too, was confused by Swedish flag in MN. Being a Hoosier, I do understand that our reputation for basketball hysteria justifiably is fading between IU not winning a banner since the 80s and AAU-ification of the pre-college game.

Yep, Mayo Clinic. And we do have lots of Swedes in MN. I recall going to a Davis Cup match in Minneapolis in 1991 between Sweden and the USA; there was a TON of Swedish support. Really fun matches too with Sampras, Courier, and Agassi coached by McEnroe vs. Stefan Edberg, Anders Jarryd, etc. from Sweden.

Oct 31, 2018
I picked it up because of crab cakes and the terrapins. Was the native tribe that first played lacrosse from Maryland? Or does that emoji have some other significance? I thought it came from tribes further north.

So that people that dont read the comments can keep asking the same question.. (I think it is the vikings though, ancestry seems farfetched and even I have heard of the vikings, I know nothing about sports, and am not from the US)

There is a beehive on the flag and the bees are a symbol of the Mormons because of how they work hard and work together. At least, thats what found through my own research,
+1
Level 65
Apr 27, 2021
Lol it is because Utah is the Beehive state. That is the nickname
+1
Level 61
Apr 28, 2021
For the people of Utah, the beehive symbolizes the Utah community as each person in Utah works together to support and help one another and to create a successful industry. Industry was adopted as Utah's state motto in 1959. It is listed on these statues as well as on Utah's state seal and state flag.
