Grand Jide had part of its spelling modified (from its old form Gedeh).

About the flag

The new county rises like its namesake mountain; white is for purity of heart, blue for peace and prosperity.
Željko Heimer, 08 Jan 2000, quoting from [smi75b]

On the website of The Grand Gedeh Association in the Americas Incorporated the flag of the county is different.

The only significative difference I see is the color of the upper stripe, grey instead of blue. This being most probably due to computer imaging error and all other differences being of detail, I say that this is the county flag, but not different enough to be a new one (nor to be the flag of something else).

This is an excellent finding, however, and indeed the differences found between this flag image in use and the image from [smi75b] prove that this flag is “real” (as probably all other county flags too) — if this page showed instead an image identical to the one in [smi75b], it could be due to the web designer for Grand Gedeh Association in the Americas having it copied from above or other source based on [smi75b].
