I’m a local from Albany and I feel disconnected from my flag, due to its lack of representation and it’s racist ties.

It's time we acknowledge the negative connotations to our past and come up with fresh outlooks. I don't really care for the design of the new version as presented, however. I think it could have something on it that represents the state better. For example, the state mammal is the beaver. Maybe a simple representation of this animal could encompass our history that will include the natives who were here long before first contact.

I'm not convinced I like the new design, but with the explanation of the history of the old flag, it should be replaced.

We should not model our flags based on symbols used to support apartheid like South Africa's old flag!
