What U.S. state has the motto "The Star of the North"?

  • North Dakota
  • Minnesota correct

    The motto was chosen by Henry Hastings Sibley, the state’s first governor. People often refer to Minnesota as "The North Star State" because of the motto, which can be found on the state flag and the great seal of Minnesota. That's not the state's only nickname, though - it’s also known as "The Land of 10,000 Lakes" and "The Bread and Butter State."
