State Archives to host virtual program on the N.C. state flag, two students’ proposal for change

Join the State Archives of North Carolina for a virtual program titled “Flag Day: Time to Change North Carolina’s State Flag?” as presenters delve into the history of North Carolina’s state flag and explore ideas for its redesign.

This “Lunch and Learn” event will take place June 14 from noon to 1 p.m., with Wyat Hamilton and Adam Fleischer, both engineering majors from N.C. State University, who have conducted research to propose a new flag design. They will share their insights on why they believe it is time for a change, present the design they plan to recommend to the state legislature, and discuss the records in the Archives that influenced their proposal.
