Municipal flags in Mecklenburg County:
located by Zach Harden, 26 February 2003
Mecklenburg County also has a seal, which is used on stationery, cars, trucks, doors, and the county flag. The banner in the eagle's claws has the date the Mecklenburg County Declaration of Independence was signed. The inkwell, quill pen, and paper also symbolize the Declaration. The farm buildings represent the county's rural or unincorporated areas, and the office buildings represent the urban or city area. The county seal also has a hornet's nest, and the two different kinds of branches represent modern and traditional times. The seal was designed by Harvey H. Boyd and was adopted by the County Commissioners in October of 1964.
The website at www.queencitytours.com/images/Services.qct/Sites/Co.Seal.Flag.12.15.06%20012.jpg shows this seal used on a white field as the county flag.

Mecklenburg County is in southwest central North Carolina and encompasses the city of Charlotte. According to the website, the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office is responsible for "providing security for
the courts, the service of civil process, enforcing local, state, and federal laws operating the largest jail system in the Carolinas."
AA photograph showing the sheriff's office flag can be seen online at (www.charlotteobserver.com/news/local/crime/article20486337.html). The flag of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office features the star-shaped sheriff's badge in gold against a white field. Arched above the badge are the words "MECKLENBURG COUNTY" in dark green letters fimbriated gold, with the words "SHERIFF'S OFFICE" arched below in similar lettering.
