The Milford City Council adopted a design for a city flag at its March 5 meeting. Milford's city flag was created by Nolan Eickhoff as an Eagle Scout project. According to Eickhoff, the white symbolizes peace, the black justice, the grey bravery, the purple kindness and the gold prosperity. The shape of the lines represents Milford moving forward, as it resembles an arrow pointing toward the future. The mill wheel is for the old mill that the town is named after, and the wheat is for the agriculture the town is based on.

Milford now has an official city flag as voted on by its residents. Boy Scout Nolan Eickhoff designed the flag as part of his Eagle Scout project. The Milford City Council approved Eickhoff’s project in July 2018, and Eickhoff asked for community input through a series of surveys. Eickhoff offered the top three designs as voted on by residents, as
well as alternatives with varying color schemes, at the council’s March 5 meeting.
