Connecticut Flag Q&A

Who made the Connecticut Flag? 

The design was inspired by the seal of the Saybrook Colony made by George Fenwick when it was established in 1639. This seal was adjusted to have only three grapevines instead of 15. The wording and position of the state motto were also altered on the seal. The flag containing this seal was first proposed by Governor Owen Coffin in 1895 to be the state flag and was later approved by the Connecticut General Assembly in 1897. 

What is the meaning of the Connecticut State Flag?

The three grapevines represent the three oldest settlements in the state: Windsor, Hartford and Wethersfield. The flag also features the Latin inscription “Qui transtulit sustinet,” which means “He who transplanted still sustains.” This is a motto based on the 80th psalm of the Bible.
