Description of the flag

from Appalachian Alliance:

WHY a Flag of Appalachia? To represent the people of Appalachia, beyond politically imposed borders, and all its potential that is within its people. Appalachia is home to nearly 25 million people, as the borders are defined by the Appalachian Region Commission, that extends across the globe increasing the number of people from Appalachia exponentially. We proudly fly our flag, while telling the REAL story of Appalachia.

Color and symbol interpretation:

  • Blue - sky, unlimited vision and potential.
  • Brown / Red - earth, hard work, and deep roots, along with the blood and sweat of its people - the backbone of this nation's rise to a World power.
  • White Star - purity and guiding light to a rising future.
  • Green - triangle at the hoist signifying growth (both nature and human) with the Star on its way up the side of the slope - the slope signifies the hilly profile of Appalachia.
Design by Secundino Fernandez, NAVA

Appalachian Glory flag

While searching for a possible flag for Berea College in Berea, Kentucky in the Appalachian region of the eastern united States, I encountered a blog belonging to a poet hitherto unknown to me named as David Wayne Hampden. When scrolling down this blog depicts a flag described as the Appalachian Flag.
