North Dakota Flag. Heavyweight durable nylon flag finished with a strong canvas heading and two brass grommets.
North Dakota's dark blue field displays a bald eagle holding an olive branch and a bundle of arrows in its claws. In its beak, the eagle carries a ribbon with the words " One nation made up of many states". The shield on its breast has thirteen stars, representing the original thirteen states. The fan shaped design above the eagle represents the birth of a new nation, the United States. The name "North Dakota" appears on a red scroll below the eagle. On March 3, 1911, the North Dakota Legislative Assembly adopted the official North Dakota State Flag. Introduced by Representative Colonel John H. Fraine, the legislation required the flag conform to the color, form, and size of the regimental flag carried by the North Dakota Infantry in the Spanish-American War in 1898 and Philippine Island Insurrection in 1899. The only exception is the name "North Dakota" placed on the scroll beneath the eagle in place of the words "First North Dakota Infantry."
