State of Vermont Flag
State of Vermont Flag
- Year First Flown: 1923
- Designed By: Ira Allen
- Design: A blue flag with the Vermont coat of arms placed in the center of the flag. The coat of arms includes images of: a cow, bundles of wheat, a pine tree, the head of a buck, and pine tree branches. The coat of arms also includes the state's name and its motto "Freedom and Unity".
- Meaning: The cow and the wheat are included to represent Vermont's agriculture industry. The large pine tree is used because it has been a symbol of New England spirit since early colonial days. The pine branches that outline the shield represent the pine sprigs that Vermont soldiers wore during the War of 1812. The buck's head represents the natural treasures of the state of Vermont.
Records show that the first official state flag of Vermont was not created until 1804. However, the Vermont militia used a flag design that dates all the way back to 1777. The Vermont militia was known as the Green Mountain Boys, and was formed in 1770. The Green Mountain Boys flag's design included a green background and a blue canton with white stars. This flag was recognized all over Vermont and acted as an unofficial symbol of the state.
In 1804, Vermont adopted a flag that resembled the National U.S. Flag, but with 17 stars and 17 stripes and the name "Vermont" placed at the top of the flag. That year two states had been added to the union and Vermont Legislature thought that the American Flag would also change to 17 stars and 17 stripes. However, the American flag actually adopted the practice of keeping the stripes to a constant 13 stripes and only changing the number of stars for each new state. On October 20th, 1837, Vermont changed its flag design. The new design included 13 red and white horizontal stripes (like the national flag) and the Vermont seal placed in the center of a blue canton. In 1923 it was decided that the Vermont state flag's similarity to the national U.S. flag could be confusing, so a new flag design was adopted. This time the flag design included a blue background with the Vermont coat of arms placed in the center. This design has remained unchanged since 1923 and is still the official state flag of Vermont.
