The Delaware State Flag
The colonial blue field and the buff colored diamond were said, by members of the commission established to design the state flag, to represent the colors of a uniform worn by General George Washington. And, indeed, some regiments of the Revolution wore blue coats with buff trim. The diamond is a reference to an early Delaware state nickname, the Diamond State, so given because of Delaware's small size and great value, evidenced in its geographical position on the Atlantic Ocean and its leadership contributions.
The coat of arms depicts early occupational symbols for shipping, farming, hunting and cattle ranching which covered most of what the state of Delaware population work efforts.
