Connecticut

The flag of Connecticut – the symbol of one of 50 US states.

Design

The flag consists of a state seal of Connecticut, a blue field as a background, and a ribbon with a state motto written in Latin, “Qui transtulit sustinet” (“He who is transplanted still sustains”). The seal contains a white shield with three grapevines with purple grapes inside it. The grapevines represent knowledge, religion, and liberty. They also stand for the three original settlements Connecticut Hartford, Windsor, and Wethersfield (the three is also the number of grapes in each grapevine). The shape of the flag is strictly determined (5.5 feet (1.7 m) in length and 4.33 feet (1.32 m) in width).

History

The flag of Connecticut was made with the help of the organization called “The Daughters of the American Revolution”. It was introduced to the government in 1895. In 1897 it was officially approved. The description of the flag was determined by the state law in the same year.
