Description of the flag

The Conover City flag is described at

The green background reflects the arbor canopy of the city. The blue (see note) and white lines form a Y representing the Y intersection of the railroad. The seal is placed on the Y intersection representing where Conover essentially began. The Conover City Seal contains the following elements:

  • The blue "C" forming the border represents Conover.
  • The gazebo in the upper half of the center is the gazebo in Downtown Park and is a focal point in downtown.
  • The train facing backwards symbolizes the city's beginnings where the city's first buildings were constructed at the Y intersection of the railroad.
  • The truck facing forward symbolizes the diversified industrial base which strengthens our future.
  • The tree between the train and truck shows Conover's commitment to the environment and arbor canopy in our neighborhoods.
  • The date "1876-77" is the charter by the citizens (1876) and the incorporation by the North Carolina Assembly (1877).
  • The banner and phrase "Community and Industry" represents the two strongest elements that make our city admirable.
  • The diamonds circling the seal with the connecting diamond at the bottom communicates all the different aspects of the city coming together to form a high quality of life in Conover.
Both the Seal (1992) and Flag (1997) were designed by Randolph S. Williams, AICP, Planning Director for Conover.
