State of New Jersey Flag
State of New Jersey Flag
- Year First Flown: 1896
- Designed By: Pierre Eugene de Simitiere (coat of arms design)
- Design: A buff-colored flag with the state's coat of arms placed in the center. New Jersey's coat of arms includes three plows, two women holding a shield, the New Jersey state motto "Liberty and Prosperity", the year 1776, a helmet, and a horse's head.
- Meaning: The buff color of the flag and the blue of the shield are the same colors of the uniforms of the New Jersey Continental Line during the American Revolutionary War. The three plows represent the fact that New Jersey was the third state to join the Union and the importance of agriculture to New Jersey. The women holding the shield are supposed to be Lady Liberty and Ceres. Lady Liberty represents freedom and manifest destiny, while Ceres (the goddess of agriculture) stands for abundance of food and wealth. The helmet represents sovereignty, while the head of the horse symbolizes strength.
History of the Flag
The state of New Jersey officially became a state on December 18th, 1787. New Jersey did not officially adopt a flag until 1896, but the designing of the flag began quite a bit earlier than that. In 1779 George Washington, the Commander-in-Chief, directed that the regimental coats should be colored dark blue and buff. In 1780, the Continental War Officers declared that each regiment must have two flags: one the American Flag and the other a state flag. George Washington himself decided that the flags of New York and New Jersey, and only those two states, would share the colors of dark blue and buff with the uniforms of the regiments. Washington made this decision because both New York and New Jersey were originally settled by the Dutch, and dark blue and buff were the colors of the Holland insignia. In 1896, the state of New Jersey officially adopted the flag design that it still uses today: a buff flag with dark blue accents in the New Jersey coat of arms.
