The city of Camden has rolled out a new display of decorative flags in honor of the contribution horse racing -- one of the most ancient of all sports -- has made to the overall cultural heritage of the community. According to city officials, a fluttering 40-flag display of jockey silks -- the colors jockeys wear in races that are the registered “colors” of the owner who employs them -- now fly along Broad Street in historic Downtown Camden, representing six very famous owners of steeplechase winners in Camden and around the world. In addition, flags printed with the new Camden: Classically Carolina brand logo with the “Steeplechase” icon are interspersed among display of jockey silks flags.
