Tennessee North Carolina Heritage Flag

Tennessee-North Carolina Heritage Flag
North Tennolina Flag

Until 1790 Tennessee was a part of North Carolina. Thusm this flag was made to honor the North Carolina Heritage of Tennessee.

The pattern is similar but both horizontal bars are red. Instead of a 'N' and 'C' there is a 'T' and 'N.'

Likewise the dates are different. They refer to the admission of Tennessee as an American State. Tennessee was the first of the 'Born Again American States.' On June 24, 1866 it was readmitted under a coincidentally North Carolina born President - Andrew Johnson. Tennessee was first admitted into the United States on June 1, 1796.
