City of Raleigh Flag


The bull is the de facto mascot for Durham like the squirrel can be for Raleigh.

Hello DTRaleigh community! We thought those following this thread might like an update on the New Raleigh Flag project. Here’s the latest:

Over the last few months we’ve conducted “test marketing” by handing out mini flags and speaking with lots of residents and business owners. Reception of the new flag concept has been extremely positive. Encouraged by this feedback, we’re about to move beyond our current low-key word-of-mouth campaign and adopt a more assertive public relations posture.

At the end of this month you’ll see a story about the flag campaign in a local magazine. This should be the start of a sustained media initiative. You’ll also begin to see flags appear at businesses around town. And we’ll be ramping up our networking and social media activity.

While our ultimate goal is to have the flag officially adopted by the city, we’re initially working to drive social adoption. Social adoption requires engagement. Folks like you will determine whether it succeeds.

If you support the mission, you can help in a few ways:

  1. Tell people. Encourage friends and neighbors to visit our website and become familiar with the movement.

  2. Are you the owner of a public-facing business in Raleigh? Or know someone who is? Consider flying a flag at your business, or asking your business-owning friends to do the same. Don’t have a flag pole? No worries. We have flags of different sizes that can be hung on walls or from rafters. E-mail or DM us and we’ll hook you up.

  3. Become a mini-flag handout volunteer. Contact us for details.

  4. Follow us on social media to stay connected with the movement. Instagram will be our most active platform going forward. Our handle is @newraleighflag.

Finally, if you have ideas or would like to help the campaign in other ways, contact us! This is a community issue. We’re ready to grow and broaden our efforts.

Thanks for your support!

I think it would be cool to have some minis at apartment complex leasing offices, maybe when as a welcome gift for new residents!


Would love a high quality garden flag like this.
