The Connecticut flag, which is among one of the most ancient
flags, was originally used during the Revolutionary War when
Connecticut troops used this seal on their flag. The flag
consisting of a blue field with the arms in the center was
officially adopted in 1895 after pressure from the Daughters
of the American Revolution. On June 3, 1897 it was regulated
that the arms should be in color in the center of a field
of azure blue. The flag was originally supposed to be "squarish" but
further regulations in 1957 said the flag had to have proportions
of 2: 3.
