The Connecticut flag was adopted in 1897, but it was based on Saybrook Colony’s seal from 1639. The banner is set on a light blue background. A white shield with three grapevines is depicted in the center.
A banner with the state’s motto is located below this shield. The Connecticut flag was approved by the state’s general assembly. The original seal of Saybrook had 15 grapevines, but the number was cut down to three. The number three may represent the three settlements of Saybrook, Connecticut, and New Haven.
