New ND Flag Unveiled
North Dakota has a new state flag. Governor Jack Dalrymple and Secretary of State Al Jaeger unveiled a historically accurate North Dakota state flag Thursday morning. Dalrymple and Jaeger were joined by representatives from the State Historical Society and the State Procurement Office, along with Bismarck fourth graders.
The new flag is a result of legislation passed in 2001, which requires the flag to mimic the one carried by the North Dakota infantry in the Spanish-American war in 1898.
The North Dakota state flag was adopted on March 3, 1911.
