New Jersey (NJ) State Flag The 3rd state, admitted 1787
The buff color of the New Jersey flag represents the coats of the uniforms that General George Washington and New Jersey NJ troops wore during the Revolutionary War. The New Jersey state seal, designed by Eugene de Simitiere, specifically avoided any signs of British dominance. The two female figures are Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture, representing prosperity and abundance and Liberty, carrying a pole bearing a liberty cap, which was also a symbol of freedom. The three plows within the shield also stand for agriculture, and above it, the horse's head, represents strength and speed in peace and war. It is now the New Jersey state animal.
