Flag Delaware

The flag of Delaware was adopted on July 24, 1913. The flag contains a colonial blue field with a buff-colored diamond and the coat of arms of Delaware in the center.  Under the diamond is the date December 7, 1787, which was the day Delaware became the first state of the United States.  The colors on the flag were meant to reflect the colors of the uniform of George Washington.  The coat of arms was adopted on January 17, 1777.  It depicts a shield in the center with three horizontal bands colored blue white and green.  Standing on the green is an ox and above the strips there is a sheaf of wheat and an ear of corn to represent Delaware’s agriculture.  Holding the shield there is a soldier to the right and a farmer to the left.  Above the shield is a ship and below the shield there is a banner with the state motto “Liberty and Independence”.
