Flags of Our Nation, Set VI:  2012 marks the sixth and final set of stamps in the series.  The state and territory flags reflect the history of each region they represent.  The uniqueness of each state flag in the series reflects the diversity of the United States and its territories.    

 

The motto on Vermont’s flag, “Freedom and Unity,” reflects a balance between personal liberty and a responsibility to others.  Soldiers from “The Green Mountain State” have defended their right to pursue those ideals since the Revolutionary War. 

 

Though the designs changed after the War for Independence, warriors from Vermont proudly marched behind their regimental flags.  Soldiers who fought in the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, and the early days of World War I carried a flag that featured the Vermont State Coat of Arms on a blue field.  

 

The coat of arms expresses the character of the state.  Prominent pine boughs and a pine tree represent the forests.  The deer’s head is a reminder of the plentiful wildlife, which inhabit the green fields and mountains pictured.  The cow and sheaves of wheat indicate the agricultural industry which still sustains many Vermont residents.  

 

The banner which inspired Vermonters in battle became the state’s flag in 1923.  It seemed a fitting representation of the New England state, where individuals are considered as important as community.
