1-16-13: Flags of Maryland

Have you ever seen a flag, and wondered what it meant? In our series “Flags of Maryland,” we’re examining the history of some of the flags around our state—and looking at the reasons we fly them.
In this segment, we hear from former assistant state archivist Ed Stiverson, on the history of the Maryland flag. We also talk with Emily Rose Proctor, associate pastor at Brown Memorial Presbyterian Church in Baltimore, speaking about the decision to hang a rainbow flag above the door of her church. And we hear from Dickeyville resident Charleye Dyer. She hangs an MIA / POW flag in honor of her dad, who’s been missing in action since his plane went down in what is now Papua New Guinea, on November 2, 1943.
We want to hear about your flags, as well. Do you have a flag that’s particularly meaningful to you? What is it, and when do you fly it?
Let us know--we'll post that flag on our map, and we'll tell some of those stories on air over the next six months, leading up to Flag Day. You can email us at email@example.com, or give us a call at 410-881-3162.
