Thirteen Colonies Colonial Meridian Flag


The Thirteen Colonies Colonial Meridian Flag is a type of geographic flag.  It should be flown at 85 Degrees West.  It represents the most western point of the Original 13 Colonies, which is the most western point of Georgia.  An interesting fact is that four states which were not a part of the original 13 are completely east of the most western point of the Original 13; states that are essentially aligned and were vital living parts of the 13 Colonies include Ohio, West Virginia, Vermont, and Maine.  A few states teeter in between the "Original Flavor" and "The Old Frontier".   States that do so are Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, and Florida.  Thus these six states can always fly this flag. 

Cities that rest on this meridian include: Bay County, Florida; Auburn, Alabama; Trenton, Georgia; Gruetli-Laager, Tennessee; Louisville, Kentucky; Anderson, Indiana; Kalamazoo, Michigan & Grand Rapids, Michigan;
