The African American Flag

African American Flag ~ The idea for the African-American Flag came into the minds of Tonya and David Harvey of Baltimore, Maryland when they were singing the BIack National Anthem at a 1991 African-American Banquet.

History

The idea for the African-American Flag came into the minds of Tonya and David Harvey of Baltimore, Maryland when they were singing the BIack National Anthem at a 1991 African-American Banquet. Tonya and David decided that the BIack National Anthem needed a flag to symbolize the meaning of the Anthem.

Purpose

The purpose of the African-American Flag is to be a symbol of the past, present, and future value of the African-American life in the United States of America.

Use

Tonya and David Harvey envision the African-American Flag being flown on HBCU campuses, African American churches, African-American businesses, and African-American homes throughout the country.

Motto of Flag

"Persevering Through Time"
