The League would like to encourage municipalities to purchase the correct version of the State flag. The underskirts of the goddesses are silver as set forth by the NJ legislature in 1928. Non-approved versions show the underskirts incorrectly in blue.
The League would like to encourage municipalities to purchase the correct version of the State flag.
On behalf of the New Jersey State Treasury Printing Service, we are distributing this information so that municipalities will be aware of the correct and approved version of the New Jersey state flag when making flag purchases from vendors.
Displayed below is the state approved image for use the on flag. Please note that the underskirts of the goddesses are Argent (silver) as set forth by the New Jersey legislature in 1928.
Non-approved versions show the underskirts incorrectly in blue. Presumably, these came into existence during the 1990s with the advent of desktop publishing. Over time, lacking properly approved digital files, the incorrect versions spread and were used on the state flag.
Earlier this year, 50 of the most prominent flag manufacturers and retailers were alerted as to what was the correct version and provided with digital art files upon request.
When purchasing New Jersey state flags for display, please ensure that you are purchasing a flag with the correctly colored image.
Thank you for your cooperation.
