North Carolina - Flag Facts
Before North Carolina became a state in 1789, it flew the flag of Great Britain. On May 20, 1861, at a state convention, it was resolved that North Carolina would secede from the Union. An ordinance was introduced the same day proposing that a state flag be approved. A design submitted by William Browne was approved on June 22, 1861. This design was used until 1885 when a new design was created and is still the same design used today with only minor changes.
The current flag design is very similar to the original design of 1861 and consists of:
- a blue union with a white star in the center
- a golden “N” to the left of the star
- a golden “C” to the right of the star
- two golden ribbons positioned above and below the star
- the ribbon above has the date of May 20th 1775, the date of Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence (the authenticity of this document is questionable, therefore there is controversy as to why this date is on the state flag)
- the bottom ribbon has the date of April 12th, 1776, to remember the Halifax Resolves (The Halifax Resolves was the name given to the resolution by which North Carolina sought independence from Great Britain)
- to the left of the blue union, there are two horizontal bars (stripes) of equal proportion: red on top, white on the bottom
