My proposed state flag for North Carolina. [Posted by Ken Morton]
The shape of the angles in the flag mimic the shape of the state itself, with blue for the ocean in the southeast, and green for the mountains and forests in the northwest. This idea is also represented in the state seal. The white bar in the middle of the flag represents the Piedmont Crescent, the historical economic and population center of the state connecting Charlotte and Raleigh. The Crescent was developed as a result of the cotton mill industry, hence the white color. The red star comes from a Civil War version of the NC flag that had a red field with white star. The colors are inverted today to reflect the new direction of the state in the modern era. The star also represents the cap of liberty and horn of plenty from the state seal. Posted by Preston Knapp
