Description
On a blue shield 2 3/4 inches (6.99 cm) in height and 2 7/16 inches (6.19 cm) in width overall, a bundle of five arrows, three in front and two in rear, points to top, within a circle composed of nine stars, the one at base twice the size of the remainder, all yellow.

Symbolism
Blue and yellow are the colors of the state flag of New Hampshire. The nine stars represent New Hampshire as the ninth state to ratify the Constitution thereby making the Constitution effective. The bundle of five arrows, taken from the New Hampshire State Seal (1776), represents the five counties of New Hampshire bound together into a common state government.
