Municipal flags in Monroe County:
At www.rnews.com/Story_2004.cfmID=28919&rnews_story_type=18&category=10 there is confirmation that Monroe County, New York, has a flag. There is a news article about the County Executive presenting a Boy Scout group with county flags. An accompanying photo shows the flag being presented- it is folded up and only a gold portion is visible. Behind the Executive is a flag draped on a staff, which may be a better view of the same flag. A lot of it is still obscured, but it appears to be a vertical tribar with a green/gold seal in the center panel. Another photo of the flag appears at www.monroecounty.gov/org32.asp?orgid=32&storyID= behind the County Legislators, adding to the likelihood that it is the county flag. At that page there are also 2 images of the county seal. Finally, a photo at www.billsmith.org/pic01.htm clearly shows that the flag is green-yellow-green.

“Our current flag, adopted later in 2012, has a tri-colored field (Navy,
White, and Yellow Gold) with the Deputy Sheriff’s Star in the center of the
white field (see enclosure). As the flag of our nation, the Navy represents
Justice for All. The White stands for Purity and Honor and the Gold stands for
Service, and is also the color of the badges worn by the men and women of the
Sheriff’s Office. The flag includes the Core Values of the agency, those being
Respect, Integrity, Teamwork and Excellence (RITE). It was made to be
double-sided, nylon and all-weather. It has both an outdoor as well as indoor
version. The latter is equipped with gold fringe. The flag pole (indoor) is
topped with a gold spear or is wall mounted.”
