This North Carolina flag design was inspired by the flag of Charlotte, North Carolina, which had a white saltire on a blue field. The saltire represents the old Confederacy. The blue and white were the colors of Sir Walter Raleigh, whom which the capital city of Raleigh was named after. The red, white, and blue represents the United States. The blue is placed vertically and the red horizontally to avoid confusion with the flag of the flag association I am a part of, although both look a little bit like it. Oh, well. At least it's not a chevron design.
The current North Carolina flag isn't too bad, but it is often confused with the flag of Texas, which shouldn't and probably won't ever be changed.
Welcome to Flag Designer! This blog is about flag designs from around the world that have not been adopted, but I hope they will be. This blog also includes a description of the flag designs and my opinions. Each post shows only the best flag design found for each person, place, thing, or idea.
