What are the requirements?
The standard size flag is 3 feet by 5 feet. The flag should be on a pole that can be easily carried by one person during the procession.
What should be on the flag?
Flag designs vary from township to township. Putting the township logo on a flag is perfectly acceptable. If you are starting from scratch, a flag may include the township name, the year it was established, the county name (optional), and sometimes a motto, if the township has one. Choose a design that represents what is unique or outstanding about your township, such as local wildlife, industries, natural resources, or historical sites. Consider holding a flag design contest for local schools. Your perfect design may be out there just waiting to be discovered.
How can we get a flag made? A simple Google search for custom flag-making companies will yield numerous results. Alternatively, your township may have a talented resident who can sew, embroider, screen-print, or even paint a flag. Allow ample time for any of these methods of making a flag … check with talent at least 4 weeks out.
