It's Time For A New Flag, Nebraska State Senator Says


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A Nebraska state senator says it's time to design a new state flag. Burke Harr says Nebraska's flag flew upside down at the state capitol for 10 days and nobody noticed. The flag is picturesque. It has a blacksmith hammering an anvil; a steamboat; a passing train.
