Shipping from the State of Connecticut to Colorado
On January 9, 1788, Connecticut became a U.S. state. It is one of the original 13 colonies as well as one of the six New England states. Connecticut is the third smallest state by area, the 29th most populous, and the 4th most densely populated of the 50 states. It was influential in the development of the federal government of the United States.
Connecticut is the southernmost state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. It is bordered by Rhode Island to the east, Massachusetts to the north, New York to the west, and Long Island Sound to the south. Its capital is Hartford and its most populous city is Bridgeport. It is part of New England, although portions of it are often grouped with New York and New Jersey as the tri-state area. The state is named for the Connecticut River which approximately bisects the state. The word “Connecticut” is derived from various anglicized spellings of an Algonquian word for “long tidal river”.
Connecticut’s official nickname is “The Constitution State”. It is also well-known by these nicknames “The Nutmeg State”, “The Provisions State”, and “The Land of Steady Habits”. The state tree is the White Oak, the state bird is the American Robin and the state flower is the Mountain Laurel. The state motto is ‘He who transplanted still sustains’ (Latin: Qui Transtulit Sustinet).

It is also well-known by this nickname “Colorful Colorado”. The state tree is the Colorado Blue Spruce, the state bird is the Lark Bunting and the state flower is the White and Lavender Columbine. The state motto is ‘Nothing without the Deity’ (Latin: Nil sine Numine).
