'"I've seen the original flag, and I've seen the flag now, and 1847 was an important year when the pioneers came into Utah, and I would like the flag to be in the original way," - Article

Wouldn't it then represent the Ute tribe?

Did the Ute tribe come into Utah in 1847? I'm not sure I understand Pagan's insinuation.

Yesterday, in the hearing on the Flag Resolution Rep. Lee Perry, answered a question that I did not know the answer to. Rep. Janice Fisher asked the question about the on the 6 arrows on the shield of the flag, which I told her that on the first flag of 1903 there were 8 and in 1913 it was changed to 6 arrows.

Rep. Perry said, that the 6 arrows represented the 6 tribes that inhabited Utah during the territorial period.

which Ute tribe? Ute, Piute, Goshute, Northern Ute, Southern Ute, Ute Mountain Ute tribe, Capote, Mouache, Parianucs, Tabeguache, Uintah, Weeminuche, Yampa?

(that's a few more than the six referenced by Mr. Fox, maybe there's some overlap)
