Description of the Flag

The flag of Chapmanville West Virginia, was revealed in July 2022 during the town's 75th anniversary celebration. How the flag was designed and adopted was stated on this post by Councilwoman Robin Adams Mutters on the town's Facebook page:

"The winner of The Town of Chapmanville Flag contest that was hosted by The Chapmanville Beautification Committee and The Town of Chapmanville was Harlea Abraham. Harlea was awarded $400.00 (donated by Ralph Rodighiera) and the first flag. We would like to thank everyone that took the time to submit a design. All the designs were amazing and we may ask for your permission to use it at a later date. The designs were taken to the town council meeting to be voted on, the council, town recorder and mayor choose the winner, I abstained from voting because I knew who each design belonged to and didnít want anyone to think that I was biased. We have some of the most talented people and we are so proud of each one of you and we appreciate everyone that participated."

This flag is indeed the flag of Chapmanville High School, and in particular of its athletic teams. It is what is generally known as a 'Spirit Flag', designed to whip up school spirit before football and basketball games, when it is waved at pep rallies. It is not unusual for small towns to adopt their school flags, especially these 'spirit flags', as municipal flags, especially if the local high school has won some sort of state or regional championships in the previous few years.
