A new flag is being considered.
Also initiating change in town was Aidan Harvey, Warwick Valley Middle School seventh grader. “A month or so ago, Aidan approached the town board and pointed out that the town doesn’t have a flag. So he came to us and made a presentation and would like to show the results of it,” said town supervisor Michael Sweeton.Dave Fowler, 4 May 2022
Harvey had made the new design of the flag and told the board and town what the flag meant.
“This purplish burgundy color symbolizes the wineries of Warwick; the green symbolizes farming,and the red isfor apple fest. Can’t have Warwick without apples,” said Harvey.
In the center is the town’s seal. The town board will wait two weeks and show off this new design to everyone and then may adopt it as the official flag of the Town of Warwick.
A flag designed by a Warwick seventh grader, Aidan Harvey, was adopted as the the Town of Warwick flag by the town council last week. Aidan explained what the colors represent for those who weren’t there when he first showed the council his creation on April 28.
“Burgundy represents the wineries. Green represents the farming community, and the red represents the apples of AppleFest because you can’t have Warwick without AppleFest,” said Aidan.
