The South Dakota State Flag

The flag of the state of South Dakota represents the U.S. state of South Dakota with a field of sky blue charged with a version (in navy blue on white) of the state seal in the center, surrounded by gold triangles representing the sun's rays, surrounded in turn by inscriptions in gold sans-serif capitals of "SOUTH DAKOTA" on top and "THE MOUNT RUSHMORE STATE" (the state nickname) on the bottom. The inscription on the bottom was "THE SUNSHINE STATE" before it was changed in 1992. Read the full Wikipedia article.

About Jacobus tenBroek

Jacobus tenBroek was the founding President of the National Federation of the Blind, and, as such, a towering figure in the blind civil rights movement. But as much as Dr. tenBroek devoted his volunteer efforts to the fight for equality, opportunity, and security for the blind, he also pursued a career as a lawyer and university professor. Dr. tenBroek’s importance both to the blind movement and to legal scholarship make it a fitting tribute for the Jernigan Institute’s research library to be named for him.
