STATE COLORS  
STATE SEAL The Connecticut State Seal has changed over the years, but it still has similarities to some of the older versions of the state’s seals. The original seal had 15 grapevines on it and the motto “Sustinet Qui Transtulit” (He Who Transplanted Still Sustains). That seal was carried over to this country from England in 1639. The words “Sigillum Coloniae Connecticensis” (Seal of the Connecticut Colony) were added as the seal underwent revisions in later years.
