City of Union -- Seal and FlagDov Gutterman, 15 June 2000
Union's first City flag was dedicated Nov. 10, 1986, at a City Council meeting. The flag was designed by Union resident Melissa Ann Post. The center of the flag depicts some of Union's history by representing two of the City's landmarks of the 1800s -- the Razor Mill and the Union Opera House. The flag also depicts one of the City's earliest local industrial products, the Sheets Rifle.
The American Eagle, in the center of the flag, represents our City's nationalism. The two rings encircling the center are symbols of the City Charter and the State Constitution. Inside the two rings are 13 stars representing Union as the 13th city to be added to Montgomery County. The border encompassing the entire flag symbolizes the U.S. Constitution.
