Delaware Fire Patches

Delaware was the 1st state in the USA; it became a state on December 7, 1787. - Rhode Island is the second smallest state in the USA - State Capital is Dover. - Nickname is First State (this is because on Dec. 7, 1787, Delaware was the first of the 12 US states to ratify the new US Constitution), Diamond State, Blue Hen State, Small Wonder. - It is the second smallest state. - The official state flag of Delaware was adopted on July 4, 1913. The flag has a blue field that features a yellow diamond with the state's seal. On the seal, a soldier (with a rifle) and a farmer (with a hoe) look at each other across scrollwork that encloses an ox, a sheaf of wheat, and an ear of corn. Under this is a white ribbon reading, "LIBERTY AND INDEPENDENCE." Above is a sailing ship (representing commerce). Below the seal is the date December 7, 1787, the date that Delaware ratified the United States Constitution (it was the first colony to do so).
