Connecticut - Flag Facts
On January 9, 1788, Connecticut became the fifth colony to ratify the U.S. Constitution. Although Connecticut displayed a flag that was generally accepted as its official state flag, the specifications were not made official until they were adopted into law by the Connecticut General Assembly in 1897. Getting the specifications written into law was prompted by the Anna Warner Bailey Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, who persuaded Governor Coffin in 1895 to propose to the Connecticut General Assembly that an official flag be adopted.
One of the most prominent features in the shield, the three grape vines, are believed to originate from a seal Colonel George Fenwick brought from England is 1639. Many believe that the grapevines represent the three colonies, New Haven, Saybrook and Connecticut (Hartford) that merged as Connecticut by 1665.
The banner that reads Qui Transtulit Sustinet (Latin: “He who transplanted continues to sustain”) was also taken from Fenwick’s seal.
