Simultaneously support American manufacturing and represent the great state of New Jersey by flying a state flag made in the United States!
Our New Jersey state flag is composed of nylon, a durable and lightweight fabric that is weather-resistant. Nylon’s lightness means that it dries quickly after rain and can fly even in gentle winds. The design on our flag of New Jersey is digitally printed, cleanly depicting every detail of the state seal. Furthermore, the inks used to create the vivid colors on this flag are UV-resistant, which helps prevent fading even under direct sunlight.
We carry the state flag of New Jersey in a wide variety of sizes, including the standard 3’ x 5’. Easily attach this flag to any of our outdoor flagpoles using the flag’s sturdy canvas header and grommets.

New Jersey Flag History and Meaning
The New Jersey flag features the state seal in the center, which was initially designed by Pierre Eugene du Simitiere in 1777. The flag using the state seal was officially adopted on May 11, 1896.
The two figures in the seal are Lady Liberty and Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture. Between them is a shield containing three plows, representing New Jersey’s farming history. The helmet and horse’s head above the shield represent the state’s independence and self-governance.
