Commemorative MLK Flag presentation scheduled for Friendship-West

Designer urges display of flag on King Holiday and Inauguration Day

Dallas, TexasOn Sunday January 11, Maria Ross will present the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. commemorative flag to Dr. Frederick D. Haynes III, Senior Pastor of Friendship-West Baptist Church.

Mrs. Ross will present the flag to Dr. Haynes during both morning services at Friendship-West.

“Dr. King’s flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, business, library, government office, school, and church,” said Ross, the flag’s designer. She’s asking that individuals and organizations fly the flag on Monday January 19th, Tuesday January 20th, and throughout Black History Month in February.

The official Dr. King commemorative flag was unveiled at The King Center in Atlanta in May of 2008. It is the only flag licensed by Intellectual Properties Management, the exclusive licensor of the King Estate.

The idea of the flag came from our company’s founders some eight years ago after being victims of a hate. They allowed the incident to drive their desire to carry on Dr. King’s legacy.
