On a field of azure blue is an ornamental white shield with three grapevines, each bearing three bunches of purple grapes. The vines stand for the first settlements of English people who began to move from Massachusetts in the 1630's. These settlements were thought of as grapevines that had been transplanted.

The state motto "He who transplanted sustains us" is displayed on a white ribbon.
