North Carolina Toast

Here's to the land of the long leaf pine,
The summer land where the sun doth shine.
Where the weak grow strong and the strong grow great,
Here's to "Down Home," the Old North State.

The North Carolina State Flag
The flag has a wide blue vertical stripe at one end with two wide horizontal bars extending from it (the top red, the bottom white). The length of the flag is one-third more than its width. In the center of the blue section is a white star between the gold letters "N" and "C". Above the star is a gold scroll with the date "May 20th, 1775," and below the star is a scroll with the date "April 12th, 1776."
