The city flag has a white background with maroon circle containing the words "City of Shepherdsville Kentucky" with stars around the words. The words are shaded and show the name of our town. There is an inner white circle that contains the shape of the county in black. The number "1793" is in maroon to symbolize the founding date of the city: December 11, 1793. Next to the number is a maroon star symbolizing the location of the city within Bullitt County. The Salt River runs through Shepherdsville and the county and it is recognized with a curved line in maroon. Below the river and other items is a buffalo to symbolize Shepherdsville's early origins with the Buffalo Trail in pursuit of the salt in the area. Above the county outline and still within the circle is an American Bald Eagle in flight. This is to remind us of our freedom and to remember all those who sacrificed for preservation of it.
