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:
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.
