Connecticut’s flag is on a field of azure blue and is an ornamental white shield with three grapevines, each bearing three bunches of purple grapes. The states motto "He who Transplanted Sustains Us" is displayed on a white ribbon. The vines stand for the first settlements of English people who began to move from Massachusetts in the 1630's. These settlements were thought of as grape vines that had been transplanted. Flag adopted 1897. Connecticut’s anthem is “Yankee Doodle,” written by unknown. With this video you can see the flag and hear the anthem. Good for all students.
