Republican", 15 March 2007, David A. Vallette reports that the town flag of
Charlemont will fly soon in the Great Hall of Flags at
the Statehouse in Boston and elsewhere:
"Armed with a $1,000 donation and $4,700 approved at a special town meeting Tuesday night, town officials will seek to have a flag designed, produced, submitted to the state, and sold to residents. The flag will feature the coat of arms of town namesake Viscount Charlemont, said Finance Committee member William M. Coli, who supported the flag quest on the floor of town meeting."
Charlemont is presented as follows on the town website:
"The town of Charlemont is a hilltown community of about 1,300 residents located along the Deerfield River and the scenic Mohawk Trail in northwestern Massachusetts. Settled in 1744, Charlemont covers 26 square miles and is still home to working farms and cottage industries as well as many recreational opportunities from whitewater rafting to downhill skiing." There is a coat of arms shown on the top of the pages of the municipal website, probably the one of Viscount Charlemont.

"Robin Brooks Design worked with the Town of Charlemont, Massachusetts to design and produce this flag. The 4x5" painting of the gryphons was created in England. The Town of Charlemont was named after the Viscount Charlemont there."
