This flag was adopted on September 9, 1897. The colors of the flag are azure blue, argent white, gold, silver, brown, purple, green and black. The flag was designed in1639. The designer is George Fenwick. The design displays the arms of the state. It is five feet, six inches long and four feet, four inches wide. The field is azure blue; the armorial shield is argent white and it is a racoon design. There are three grape vine images on the shield, each bearing three bunches of grapes. The shield is outlined in gold and silver and is decorated with clusters of white oak leaves and acorns. A white streamer, bordered in gold and brown, is displayed below the shield. The motto of the state is in dark blue on the streamer. It reads Qui Transtulit Sustinet which means-he who transplanted continues to sustain. It is thought by some that the number of supported grape vines represents three colonies, New Haven, Saybrook and Hartford (Connecticut). These vines represent strong and lasting friendships. The motto is from Psalms, Chapter 79, Verse 3. All outdoor flags are finished with heading and brass grommets (H&G). PH denotes pole hem for indoor and parade use. PHF denotes pole hem and gold fringe.
