"Buckingham Township is a township in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 20,075 at the 2010 census. Buckingham takes its name from Buckingham in Buckinghamshire known as Bucks County in England. Buckingham
Township was once known as Greenville and was once the historic county seat of the English Bucks County." - from Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buckingham_Township,_Bucks_County,_Pennsylvania.
"Thanks to the generosity of the folks at Our Lady of Guadalupe Roman Catholic Church, Buckingham Township supervisors now have a flag with the township seal on it they can call their own. Church officials presented the flag to the board at a recent meeting. The Rev. Msgr. Joseph P. Gentili said the church, now under construction and set to be dedicated April 30, plans to post flags in the church's narthex. They will include flags representing the United States, the Vatican, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Bucks County. When it came to Buckingham Township, church officials requested a flag from the township to display, but none existed. So, they offered to have one made using the township seal. The green background color was chosen by the board of supervisors. In presenting the flag, Gentili said as long as they were having one made for the church, they decided to have one made for the township as well." - from doylestown.patch.com/articles/our-lady-of-guadalupe-donates-flag-to-buckingham#photo-3670492, including a photo of the flag. It is green with township seal on it.
