Greenville’s new flag is being unveiled today at its annual meeting.
The Greenville News was founded in 1891 and is based in the city’s downtown.
It is the first and only newspaper to be a member of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), which was founded by journalist John Lewis in 1972.
“We’re proud of the way we’ve changed since our first issue,” Greenville Mayor Michael Staggs said.
“We’re in the midst of a transformation that we’re very excited about.”
The News is the official newspaper of the City of Greenville, which is a state-recognised city.
It has offices in Greenville and Lexington, and employs a staff of 100 people.
The new flag features a gold and white star and white canton, the colors of the United States, and is a new design, Mr Stagges said.
The News’ new flag will be presented at a ceremony in Greenburg at 2pm today.
The first issue of the paper, which has been in print since the 1980s, is the latest issue to be printed by the company that created it, W&M Publishing.
The newspaper was founded as a publication for the African-American community, with Mr Stggs describing it as “a place where people come to connect with the people they love”.
The newspaper’s founder, John Lewis, was an avid reader of the Sunday Herald and the New York Times, and served on the city council for 12 years, before becoming president.
The Greensboro News, which will be published in Greenburgh, North Carolina, will also be published on Monday, the first day of its new format.
“There’s not much of a difference to us compared to other papers,” Mr Statt said.
“They don’t really have the same brand recognition, the same presence, or have the presence of the newspaper.”
The news has been published in the past, but is the company’s first foray into the online business, Mr Trigg said.
It will be able to have a presence online on Facebook and Google, but not in print.
“The news is going to be very different from a newspaper that you go to the newspaper and see a newspaper,” Mr Triggs said.
“This will be a very different experience.”
The company has hired a marketing agency to help develop the newspaper’s digital presence, and has created a blog, which covers news and events.
“It’s going to give us the opportunity to reach a much wider audience,” Mr Bratton said.
