Vermont 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 Vermont.

The flag of Vermont was adopted on 1st June 1923. It consists of a blue background on which is drawn the official seal of the State. As with other U.S. states’ flags (Idaho, New York ...), the blue symbolizes the one used in national flag’s canton. A deer head is placed above the seal to represent the fauna of this very rural state. It is also the case for the pine (which originally had 14 branches, to signify that Vermont was the 14th state to join the United States), straw and beef. In background are drawn the Green Mountains, which are located on its territory, in the north-east of the Appalachians. Finally, in a red lower band, you can read the motto of the state of Vermont "freedom and unity". With Kentucky, Vermont is the only state to have joined the United States on a different date than July 4. Indeed, they were the first on May 1, 1795, to join USA after their creation by the first thirteen colonies. Those states even had their strip on the Stars and Stripes, before returning to 13 stripes for creators. Vermont is known as the "Green Mountain State", and its capital is Montpelier.
