Northeast Minneapolis Flag Patch
$9.00 Sold out
Deluxe full-color patch featuring the little-known flag of Northeast Minneapolis. Patch is approx. 3.75" by 2" rectangular.
The Northeast Flag was designed in 1975 by local 10-year-old Tony Di Giovanni as part of a contest put on by the Northeast State Bank. With blue and white stripes and the red star-spangled "NE" in the corner, the flag is a striking and vexillologically sound design!
The Northeast State Bank, ran for decades by local businessman and community pillar Walter Rasmussen, has long been proud of its flags, which represent the diversity of cultures in Northeast Minneapolis. The flag still flies proudly today over the bank's unique "Parking Lot Park", but is a rare sight elsewhere in the neighborhood.
Little, bright, shiny, and distinctive. This four-color patch is backed with an iron-on adhesive and can be applied to any fabric. Fun for the whole family! Show your love for the Northeast flag in a dozen different ways.
