Knoxville honored by Iowa House


Pella — Iowa has an anniversary this week with a Knoxville connection.

The Iowa State Flag was designed in Knoxville and adopted by the general assembly 92 years ago Friday. Dixie Cornell Gebhardt is credited as the creator, along with other members of the Mary Marion Chapter of the DAR.

The governor will proclaim Friday Iowa State Flag Day, and the Iowa House has issued a resolution of its own honoring Knoxville.
