By Joellen Callahan North Carolina State Symbols resources:
the state seal picture
http://ncpedia.org/symbols/seal The North Carolina state seal was officially made in 1983. The names of the women are "Liberty" and "Plenty."
Liberty is the woman standing and holding the capped pole and the scroll saying Constitution.
Plenty is the woman sitting holding the head of the grain. The North Carolina state flag was not made official until 1885. One of the reasons why this happened was in 1861 North Carolina decided to leave the Union and join the Confederacy. After the Civil War and many debates over what the flag should look like, it became official in 1885. resources:
