About the Connecticut Flag
Connecticut became a state upon its ratification of the Constitution in 1788. However, it would wait more than 100 years before adopting its own state flag in 1895. On May 29th of that year, Governor O. Vincent Coffin, inspired by the Anna Warner Bailey Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, introduced to the Connecticut General Assembly the first proposal for the adoption of a State Flag. On that same day, the Assembly passed a resolution appointing a special committee to prepare a designation of the flag already generally accepted as the official flag of Connecticut.
The flag was to be made of azure blue silk, this field surrounding a gold- and silver-rimmed shield of argent white silk. The shield features three grapevines, each bearing three bunches of purple grapes, representing the first settlements of English who came from Massachusetts Colony to Connecticut in the 1630's. These settlements were seen symbolically as transplanted grapevines.
Below the shield is a white streamer, cleft at each end, bordered in gold and browns, bearing in dark blue letters the state's motto, Qui Transtulit Sustinet: "He Who is Transplanted Still Sustains," a further reference to the settlers from Massachusetts.
