Delaware 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 Delaware.

The flag of Delaware was adopted July 24, 1913. It consists of a blue background on which is drawn a rhombus (diamond in heraldic). In this diamond is drawn a beef, reminiscent of the large part given to agriculture in this state, like the farmer, shown on the left. The other character is a soldier, that symbolizes the struggle for independence, on which Delaware was a pioneer. Finally, the boat drawn up would be an evocation of the Atlantic Ocean that border the state. Delaware is, after Hawaii, the smallest state in the United States. It is therefore very proud to have been the first to ratify the Constitution, and has fought to create it. It is said that the blue flag recalls the color of George Washington’s suit at the time of ratification. Delaware has joined the United States on 4 July 1777, at the Declaration of Independence, as it was a part of the original thirteen states that created the United States. Delaware is also known as the "First State", and its capital is Dover.
