A Brief History of the North Carolina FlagAugust 18, 2011

Check out our North Carolina flag!


The first official flag of North Carolina was established in 1861. This state flag was used by soldiers from North Carolina during the Civil War. The current state flag was adopted in 1885. The dates printed on the flag of 1861 read May 20th 1775 and May 20th 1861; representing the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence and the date of secession from the Union, respectively. The current flag now features the first date and April 12th 1776, a date commemorating the Halifax Resolves.

The North Carolina flag is composed of three solid bars. The horizontal bars are red and white with red at the top and white at the bottom. The blue bar is vertical and found at the left side of the flag. Within the blue bar there are the letter N and C with a star in the middle. The dates May 20th 1775 and April 12th 1776 are found above and below the N and C.

Fun Facts:
There have been some efforts to remove the top date: May 20th 1775 from the flag. This is because many historians debate the legitimacy of the Meclenburg Declaration. The only surviving copy was created from memory by an attendee of the convention years after the supposed release. In 1991 the official proportions of width to length were changed from 3:4 to 2:3.

“I salute the flag of North Carolina and pledge to the Old North State love, loyalty, and faith.”
