Flag of Connecticut

The state flag of Connecticut was inspired by a memorial from a Connecticut chapter of the daughters of the American Revolution. The flag design was already generally accepted as the official flag of the state when it was proposed for adoption in 1895 (the flag was formally described in 1897 Connecticut legislation).

The flag includes a ribbon with the Connecticut state motto on it: Qui transtulit sustinet (he who is transplanted still sustains). The state seal of Connecticut also uses a similar design featuring Connecticut's armorial bearings.
