About this stamp:
New Jersey’s early agricultural heritage is strongly reflected on its state flag, which bears the classical themes found in the state seal. Three plows are on the face of the center shield, which is flanked by Ceres, the Roman Goddess of Agriculture and Plenty. In her arms she carries a cornucopia, a legendary horn holding a never-ending supply of food. The horn holds the fruits and grains that are found in New Jersey.

The flag’s design has the state seal set against a buff-colored background, a pattern influenced by General George Washington. During the American Revolution, Washington ordered Colonial military units to carry two flags – one for the new nation and one for their state flag. That state flag would be in the colors of the “facing” of the troops’ uniforms.

New Jersey’s soldiers wore dark blue uniforms with buff facing, the colors of the Netherlands. The Dutch have a strong history in New Jersey. Along with the Swedes, the Dutch settled the region as early as 1613, until the British took over in 1664. Washington had selected those colors to honor the original Dutch settlers. For more than 200 years, the state flag has flown with those same colors.
