American Flags dating back to statehood are going on display across Alaska. The vintage flags were produced in 1959, when Alaska entered the Union as America’s 49th state. State Representative John Coghill of North Pole is heading up a project to frame and place the 49-star flags in state offices and public libraries across Alaska. Coghill says a fellow Fairbanks legislator initially found the flags.
