HISTORY & MEANING OF THE STATE FLAG OF DELAWARE
The Delaware state flag was adopted on July 24, 1931, and is full of references to the colonial era when Delaware was one of the original 13 colonies. Delaware was the first state to ratify the US Constitution and the first state to enter the union officially. The date on the bottom of the flag, December 7, 1787, honors this event.
The colonial blue field and the buff-colored diamond represent the uniform colors General George Washington wore. The diamond shape references the early nickname of Delaware, the Diamond State. This nickname was used because of Delaware's great value and small size. The coat of arms depicts early occupational symbols for shipping, farming, hunting, and cattle ranching.
