The diamond shape is included to represent Delaware's nickname of The Diamond State. The coat of arms represents the importance of agriculture and commerce to the state of Delaware and the militiaman/citizen-soldier represent's Delaware's desire to maintain and protect the liberties of United States citizens. The date December 7th, 1787 is written on the flag to remind Americans of the day that Delaware was the first state to ratify the federal Constitution.
History & Significance
Delaware Coat of Arms
The state flag of Delaware was officially adopted on July 24th, 1913. Unlike many other United States flags, the Delaware flag does not have a very interesting history. The state legislature simply appointed an official flag commission, whose members presented a flag design that was eventually approved. The flag features Delaware's coat of arms, which was accepted by the state legislature in 1847. The coat of arms features two men (one a farmer and one a militia man), an ox, wheat, corn, a ship on water, and a ribbon displaying the Delaware motto "Liberty and Independence". Every icon in the coat of arms had a specific meaning that was very important to the history of Delaware. The ship was added as a sign of Delaware's ship building industry and successful coastal business, while the body of water under it represented the Delaware River. The farmer, wheat, corn, and ox were added to represent the importance of farming, agriculture, and livestock to the state of Delaware. Finally, the militiaman stood for the importance of fighting for American freedoms as did the state's motto "Liberty and Independence".
