About the North Carolina State Flag
The flag of the state of North Carolina has remained unchanged since 1885. The design for the current North Carolina flag was set forth in a bill brought before the state legislature by General Johnstone Jones in February, 1885 and was adopted by that body the following month.
The design is relatively simple: a vertical field of blue on the left, two equally sized bars of red and white on the right. Within the blue field the gold initials N C are separated by a white five-pointed star, and encompassed top and bottom with golden banners.
A date appears in each of these banners. The top, May 20th, 1775, refers to the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence. There has been some controversy over the inclusion of this reference on the state flag, as some claim that the document is probably not authentic. The original document is not in existence. Historians point to significant differences in tone between the Mecklenburg Declaration and the Mecklenburg Resolves, and authenticated document adopted just eleven days later. Many believe that the two documents could not have been created by the same people.
The date April 12th, 1776 in the lower banner commemorates the Halifax Resolves. This document demonstrates, both in time and in spirit, the unwavering resolve of North Carolinians in their demands for unconditional freedom and absolute independence from any foreign power. The Halifax Resolves shine as one of the most important landmarks in North Carolina history.
