Save Our State Flag Petition News Roundup
A LOT has happened over the last six days since we launched our petition to Save Our Maryland Flag, which has been signed by over 39,000 people.
This morning Governor Larry Hogan lent his support to the petition on Facebook:
Gov. Larry Hogan said Thursday that he has no interest in changing Maryland’s state flag, which has ties to both the Union and Confederate sides of the Civil War.
“Not only is the Maryland state flag a symbol of unity and pride, but it is also the most beautiful and most recognized state flag in America,” Hogan posted on his Facebook page Thursday morning. “You can rest assured that it will never be changed as long as I’m governor.”
Senate President Mike Miller and House Speaker Mike Busch have not yet reacted to the petition as of yet. But some Democrats are starting to express their opinions on the issue.

We’ll keep your apprised if any Democrats make any other statements for or against the flag.
We’re now very curious about the opinion of the Democratic candidates for Governor think about our state flag. What does Rushern Baker, Ralph Jaffe, Ben Jealous, Kevin Kamenetz, Rich Madaleno, Maya Rockeymoore, Alec Ross, or Jim Shea think about this petition as well as the radical left-wing notion of replacing our flag?
At this point, we encourage you not to let up. If you haven’t signed the petition, please do so. And encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to do the same.
