What's the meaning for the Black Star on the flag?
The script around the seal is in Cherokee script "Tsa la gi yi A ye hli" meaning "The Cherokee Nation." This flag shown is the current flag, adopted on October 9, 1978 and first raised on September 30, 1979. On September 9, 1989, a solitary black star was added to the upper fly in memory of the Cherokee who lost their lives during the Trail of Tears march. The seal is from the Oklahoma band of the Cherokee. The Eastern Band of Cherokee in North Carolina uses a slightly different seal.
