Statesman Tie’s Missouri tie was designed to represent the Missouri Flag. The design takes elements from the Missouri flag and mixes them together to create a tie that can be worn at any time for any occasion.
“The flag is a tricolor consisting of three horizontal stripes of red, white and blue. These represent valor, purity, vigilance, and justice. The colors also reflect the state’s historic status as part of the French Louisiana (New France). In the center white stripe is the Seal of Missouri, circled by a blue band containing 24 stars, symbolizing Missouri’s admission as the 24th U.S. state.
The Great Seal of the State of Missouri, which dominates the flag has many special meanings of its own. Robert Wells, who was a lawyer, state legislator and a judge, designed it. The seal shows, by its helmet and buckled belt, that although Missouri is a strong state, it wants to be free to handle its own problems. The grizzly bears signify the size and strength of the state and the courage of her people. The new crescent moon was included to remind us that we can make our future better; it was also a special heraldic symbol pointing out that Missouri was the second state formed out of the Louisiana Purchase. The larger star, rising into a group of 23 stars, was to remind people that Missouri became the 24th state only after solving many difficult problems. The helmet was designed to show the power of the people of the state. Finally, there are two mottoes. “United We Stand, Divided We Fall” tells us how important it is to support the whole United States. “Salus populi suprema lex esto” is Latin which means, “Let the welfare of the people be the supreme law.” That reminds us our state government functions to help better our lives.” (Source: here)
The Missouri flag has many classic colors, so we designed a classy tie. The blue dominates the tie just like the same color dominates the flag. We highlighted the red stripe with a smaller white stripe on both sides which then gave the tie a nice pop.
The Missouri tie is a great gift for missionaries, businessmen, and anyone who loves Missouri. You can even add a personalized embroidered message on the back on the tie that the wearer will be sure to love! We hand-sew each tag onto every tie.
