特拉华州的座右铭是「自由与独立」,所以它是最早添加联邦13州中的第一州,也就不叫人感到意外了。特拉华州时常被称为「第一」或「钻石之州」。它的名字来自于这片土地上的原住民:德拉瓦族印地安人(又名伦尼莱纳佩人)。为避免宾州殖民地成为内陆地区,宾恩取得这片构成特拉华州的土地。而现在的特拉华州是工业化最彻底的州之一,又以化学研究最著称。多佛是特拉华州的首府,而州花是桃花。


With the state motto of "Liberty and Independence," it's no surprise that Delaware was the first of the original 13 states of the Union; it's often called the "First" or "Diamond State." The state's name comes from its original inhabitants, the Delaware Indians (also known as the Lenni-Lenape). William Penn acquired the land that makes up Delaware to keep his Pennsylvania colony from being landlocked. Today, Delaware is one of the most industrialized states, known for its chemical research. Dover is the capital; the state flower is the peach blossom.
