New England Flag by Jason Sergenton
The Flag of New England* was designed in appreciation of the efforts and achievements of the early residents; pride in the cultural treasures, natural resources and manufactured products of the region.
Historically, New Englanders were the first Americans to forcefully throw off the yoke of English dominance, and this flag is based on the one carried by the New England Army during the Battle of Bunker Hill, June 17, 1775.
The Red Cross signifies the Cross of St. George, the patron saint of England. The green pine tree represents our tall New England pine trees and the six stars symbolize the New England galaxy - the beautiful states of Maine, New Hampshire , Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island , and Connecticut.
