About the New Jersey State Flag

 

The origin of New Jersey state flag dates all the way back to the Revolutionary War.  The buff color was chosen by General George Washington, who had been directed by the Continental Congress to proscribe the uniform for the regiments of the New Jersey Continental Line.  General Washington directed that the soldiers' coats should be dark blue with buff facing.  His choice of colors honored the original Dutch settlers of New Jersey as these were the colors of the Netherlands.

 

In 1780, the Continental War Officers issued a directive that each regiment should carry two flags: the United States flag and a state flag bearing the color of the regiment's uniform facing.  In 1896, New jersey officially adopted this color for their state flag in a joint resolution of the state legislature.  

 

The state coat of arms is centered on the flag.  The blue shield in the center contains three plows, representative of the state's agricultural commerce.  A horse's head appears above the shield.   On either side of the shield a woman stands with her hand resting on its top.  The women represent the goddesses of Liberty and Agriculture.  A blue ribbon below the shield honors the year of national independence, 1776, and contains the state motto, "Liberty and Prosperity".
