Consider the history of North Carolina’s state flag and ideas to change it in this virtual program hosted by the State Archives. “Flag Day:Time to Change North Carolina’s State Flag?,” will be held Wednesday, June 14, noon – 1 p.m.
Join us for a Flag Day lunch & learn discussion to consider the history of North Carolina’s state flag and a current proposal to change it. Two N.C. State University engineering majors have conducted research in the State Archives to propose a new flag design. Learn about why they believe it is time for a change, the design they will recommend to the state legislature, and the records in the Archives that have helped shape their proposal.
