History Of New Hampshire Flag

Under an English land grant, Capt. John Smith sent settlers to establish a fishing colony at the mouth of thePiscataqua River, near present-day Rye and Dover, in 1623. Capt. John Mason, who participated in the founding of Portsmouth in 1630, gave New Hampshire its name.

The New Hampshire Flag was adopted in 1909 by the State Legislature of New Hampshire, although the original design has been retained from 1784. From the New Hampshire Flag history, it has been gathered that the New Hampshire Flag had been modified once in 1931, to lay more emphasis on the state seal.

The basic design of the flag originated in 1909. The current flag dates from Jan. 1, 1932. New Hampshire is the ninth state of the union, gaining statehood on June 21, 1788. It is one of the original 13 colonies that united to form the union of the United States. The design of the current state seal was adopted in 1784. New Hampshire Legislature modified it in 1931.

The flag of New Hampshire consists of a blue base with the state seal in the center. Around the outside of the state, the seal is a series of laurel wreaths and nine gold stars which represent New Hampshire as the ninth state to join the Union. The body of the seal symbolizes the importance of shipbuilding in early New Hampshire.

The ship was also built in the same year. On all sides of the warship is the Atlantic Ocean. The granite rock reminds people of the state\’s nickname (the Granite State) and also serves as a symbol for the people\’s character in the state. The New Hampshire Flag beautifully portrays the past heritage of the state which has reflections even in the present.

There is a barrage of cheap and inferior New Hampshire flags being imported and sold, that do not comply with the flag statute. This is bad for a number of reasons. Imported flags are cheaply made and inferior to American-made Hampshire flags, but more importantly, the designs, materials, colors, and methods of printing do not compare well with the better quality, longer-lasting, and correctly designed flags made by American manufacturers. The Flag Company Inc specialized in flag designs offered a special edition of decals and flags to memorize the history of New Hampshire flag for the future.
