Flag proposal for North Carolina by FlagFreak, from http://flagdesigner.blogspot.com/2007/05/this-north-carolina-flag-design-was.html. Originally uploaded on 17 May 2007.
"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.
