Description of the flag

An article about the San Benito County, California, proposed flag can be found at
"It may only be a matter of time before the county has a flag it can call its own. After members of San Benito High School's Future Farmers of America asked the board of supervisors to consider creating a county flag, at the FFA's expense, the board agreed to pay homage to the California state flag. The rough draft from the county includes a sold red line at the bottom of the flag with the county's seal in the flag's middle, with the words "San Benito County" resting above the red line and below the seal. Supervisor Robert Rivas recommended the design during the board's Jan. 25 meeting. Before approving the flag, the board wanted to give the FFA students an opportunity to review and give ideas for the flag. Candice Hooper, the district attorney and an FFA booster, said the students would review and vote on the flag during their meeting Wednesday night."
