In 1953 Mrs. A. M. Waddell, president of the Society of Colonial Dames of North Carolina, presented the state flag at the Washington Memorial Chapel at Valley Forge.  

The flag was made out of silk and had the date of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence (May 20, 1775) on it and the date of the first provincial congress of independence of the colonies (April 12, 1776).
