Municipal flags in Pipestone County:
15 April 2015
County flag to fly later this year
The flag features the circular county seal, selected in 1997, that former Pipestone resident Dennis Boese designed for a contest. The flag was created at the request of PrimeWest, a county-based purchasing health plan owned by Pipestone County and 12 other rural Minnesota counties that provides health coverage to residents in the 13 member counties who qualify for Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP). PrimeWest requested flags from each of the 13 counties to be flown at its new office in Alexandria.
County Commissioners considered various colors for the background for the flag and settled on blue during their April 7 meeting.
In addition to flying the flag at the PrimeWest office, the board plans to
purchase additional flags to fly at the Pipestone County Courthouse, Fairgrounds
and possibly other county buildings.
