he city of Bexley, Ohio, population over 13,000. It is the location of Capital University, and is a suburb of Columbus. Its city pages are at http://www.bexley.org/. The date 1908 refers to the incorporation as a village, as indicated on the "History of Bexley web page: "In 1908, the Association decided to incorporate the community as a village, including all land and residents between Livingston and Town Street, but excluding the much smaller Jeffrey community farther north. Not wishing to remain isolated, but too small to incorporate itself, the Jeffrey community initiated talks with the Association. In the Summer of that year, the two groups met on the terrace of the Jeffrey Mansion and agreed to join forces. It was at this meeting, at the suggestion of Col. Kilbourne, that the name "Bexley" was chosen for the soon-to-be village. The name came from the parish housing the Kilbourne family estate in Kent, England." No mention of a flag on the history at all.
The flag is a blue-white-blue horizontal tribar swallowtail with the name Bexley in the white bar and the date in the lower blue bar.
