Connecticut, known as the "Constitution State," became the 5th of the 13 original colonies on January 9, 1788. The nickname has nothing to do with the United States Constitution however but rather with the Charter which Connecticut had under the British in 1662. Celebrate your state's history by displaying state symbols, animals, and state flags. Find your supplies at Flagandbanner.com today.
