New Jersey Flag


The New Jersey flag (with the centered sea) originated in 1787, and was officially adopted in 1896.

The flag's field is a light, yellow (or buff) color. It was personally selected by General George Washington in 1779, and worn as a uniform color by his New Jersey Continental Line troops in the Revolutionary War.

The centered blue shield features three plows, the head armor of a knight, and a horse's head above. The two women (right and left) represent the goddesses of Liberty and Agriculture.

The blue ribbon (bottom) includes 1776 (the year of independence) and the states's motto - Liberty and Prosperity.
