TAHLEQUAH – Learn about the history of the Cherokee Nation’s flag in an exhibit at the Cherokee National Supreme Court Museum.
“Where Your Flag Has Flown” will be on display June 14 through Jan. 31.

The exhibit explores the history and symbolism of the 40-year-old flag and its use throughout history, utilizing photos and stories from CN citizens across the world.

“This exhibit pays tribute to the Cherokee Nation flag and the weight it bears with our citizens,” Cady Shaw, Cherokee Nation Cultural Tourism interpretive manager, said. “We hope this exhibit helps educate the public about the flag’s creation and the powerful symbolisms behind its intricate design.”

The Cherokee National Supreme Court Museum is at 122 E. Keetoowah St. It is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Originally built in 1844, the museum is Oklahoma’s oldest public building.
