Happy birthday Connecticut! As reported by Wikipedia, on Jan. 9, in 1788, Connecticut became the fifth state of the Union.


Flag Meaning: Three grapevines are on the silver shield in the middle of the flag. The three grapevines symbolize what the colony brought over from Europe and planted in America. The state motto, “Qui transtulit sustinet ,” appears under the shield. The flag was adopted in 1897.

A little Connecticut State trivia:
State Motto: Qui transtulit sustinet (He who transplanted still sustains)
