Delaware (DE) State Flag
The 1st state, admitted 1787
Although Delaware was the first state of the nation, Delaware took a long time in deciding on a state flag. Finally, Delaware state officials authorized a design that combined elements from previous Delaware state flags. The diamond shape stands for an early nickname, the Diamond State, which referred to the perception that Delaware was small, but like a diamond, it was worth a great deal and had a lot to offer. The blue and buff colors represent the uniforms that some Delaware minutemen wore in battles during the Revolutionary War. The blue is also that of the blue hen, the official Delaware state bird. Within the diamond, a soldier and a farmer stand casually looking toward each other, signifying cooperation to maintain liberty and independence, the words below them.
