Rationale: The design features a blue field representing the ocean and the state nickname. Issuing from the hoist is a triangle that recalls the mainland portion of the state by referring to the triangle of the Eye of Providence and thus the 'Providence Plantations' part of the state’s formal name. Adjacent to this triangle is a red diamond shape that symbolises a red island - Rhode Island. Charged upon this island is the golden anchor that has been the emblem of the state since the C17th.
