This flag was created in 1991 by David Harvey (1965-2002) and his wife Tonya (nee Ivory), residents of Baltimore, MD. Their intention was to make a flag which would represent the African-American population as a whole, not being related to any political movement. The flags have been being produced and sold by DATON, Inc., a company founded by the Harveys, and were quickly accepted by a number of institutions, such as the Morgan State University (from which the Harveys have both
graduated), National Black Catholic Congress, and many others, but David Harvey's early death seems to have slowed down the spreading of the flag a great deal.
The flag has a black eight-pointed star, surrounded with four gold "flashes of light", on purple field, all within a complex border composed of red, white, blue, green, gold and black segments. The symbolism of its design is described as follows:
