Hope for New Hampshire Recovery is a community-based substance abuse recovery organization. In late 2014 or early 2015, the organization introduced a flag and presented it to the Governor of New Hampshire at a ceremony. According to the article online at www.new-futures.org, "Serving as a 'Betsy Ross' to the recovery movement, the group revealed an official flag, hoping that everyone affected - directly or indirectly - by addiction can identify with it as a symbol of optimism. 'It is our hope that this flag will act as a symbol to communicate individual and organizational support for recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction,' [HOPE Board member Marty] Boldin explained."
The flag presented to the Governor and photographed in the article is a vertical tribar of lavender-spring green-lavender. Along the upper border between the two bars closest to the hoist is a butterfly with white body and countercharged wings.
