I've been around Vettes most of my life but it wasn't until I owned one that I noticed a difference in the cross flag emblems. I did a "little" research on the history of the cross flag emblem but could not find when the checkered flag went from being on the right side to the left side and why did Chevrolet make the change? It was very interesting finding out the first cross flag design considered for production had a checkered flag and an American flag but was pulled due to licensing problems with marketing a national icon.
