Connecticut State Flag

A flag is often an amalgam of anecdotes that tell the history of a state.

You will find below the description and explanation for the symbols of the flag of Connecticut.

The flag of Connecticut was adopted September 9, 1897. It consists of a blue background on which is drawn a shield. This shield represents three vines each bearing three grapes bunches. Under this shield is written in a headband headband the state motto: Qui Transtulit sustinet, which can be translated as: "Whoever plants maintains." The flag was inherited from one of the three colonies that are at the origin of the formation of the State: Saybrook (in addition to the Connecticut and New Haven). Blue background represents, according to some historians, the Atlantic Ocean bordering the state to the east. Connecticut has joined the United States on 4 July 1777, at the Declaration of Independence, as it was part of the original thirteen states that created the United States. Connecticut is also known as the "Constitution State", and its capital is Hartford.
