History of the Connecticut Flag

The Connecticut State Flag features a vibrant blue background. The central feature of the flag is a white shield that includes three grapevines (each grapevine has three bunches of purple grapes). Below the shield is a white banner printed with the state motto, "Qui Trastulit Sustinet" which translates as, "He who translated still sustains." The three grapevines on the shield have dual symbolism; They represent religion, liberty, and knowledge as well as the three earliest colonies in the state: Hartford, Windsor, and Wethersfield.

Abby Day Slocomb was the wife of Confederate Capt. Cuthbert H. Slocomb. After his death, Abby moved to a house across the street from Fort Griswold in 1888 and in 1893 founded the Anna Warner Bailey Chapter of the "Daughters of the American Revolution." In her role as the founder of the organization, she hosted many gatherings and ceremonies and was outraged that Connecticut did not have an official state flag. The Daughters of the American Revolution, led by Slocumb created several designs and lobbied the state legislature to adopt a state flag.

Slocumb prevailed when the Connecticut State Flag was introduced in 1895 by Governor Owen Vincent Coffin and was officially adopted on September 9th, 1897. The design was derived from the submissions of the Daughters of the American Revolution. A print of the original submission is currently on display at the Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park Museum, which Slocomb was also instrumental in creating.

Connecticut is named after the Connecticut River; the name is derived from the Algonquian word, "quinatucquet" which translates as, "at the long estuary." Connecticut is nicknamed the "Constitution State" as it is home to the first written constitution, "The Fundamental Orders of Connecticut," which is said to have served as one of the inspirations for the US constitution.

The first Native American Tribes to inhabit the area where Mohegan, Pequot, and Niantic, while the first European to arrive to the area was Dutch Explorer, Adriaen Block, in 1614. British settlers soon began arriving to the area and the first settlement was established in 1633 and the area became a British Colony. After the revolutionary war, Connecticut was the fifth state to be ratified.
