New York Flag - the unofficial un-tell story

The city was far away from the major agglomeration we now know. A mix of farmers and traders of goods were hanging out and name the growing village into the new York. New York was therefor a thing.

New city face challenging future and difficult financial stability. But everyone knew that the success would come with a strong identity. Getting a icon, a flag became an obvious need.

Without money, no designer, no new flag... There came the french, again, and another boat, with a box of old and tired french flag, ready for decommission. No need for long negotiation, the box was acquired by the new city.

The council voted to simply add the city marks in the middle and use it as is. Tired colors became New York pride. The new flag was born: Blue, White, Red Orange.
