The History of the Connecticut state flag cannot be traced till over 100 years after Connecticut’s admittance as the 5th state in the Union. The Anna Warner Bailey chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution first brought up the idea of a flag in May of 1895. The members contacted Governor William Coffin and proposed their idea and a design. Governor Coffin soon proposed the idea of a state flag to the Connecticut General Assembly. The Assembly passed the proposal that day and created a committee to determine specifications for the flag. The created specifications were not officially adopted by the state until 1987. These called for the flag to be five feet and 6 inches in length and four feet four inches in width. It should be made of silk and have a background of azure blue. In the center was to be a white silk shield that was bordered by embroidered grape vines bearing fruit. The embroidery was to be a mixture of gold and silver. Under the shield is a white streamer with a gold and brown border that showed the states motto "QUI TRANSTULIT SUSTINET" in dark blue letters. In 1990 a law was passed that changed the original specifications. This took out the specification of the flag needing to be silk, changed the color of the streamer’s border to gold and silver versus gold and brown, and added white oak leaves with acorns on both sides of the streamer.
