Municipal flags in Somerset County:
The Somerset County flag shown here is modified from www.co.somerset.nj.us/countyseal_and_flag.html. It consists of a yellow field, with a seal showing a white map of the county and 21 white stars on a blue disk, and two yellow ribbons bearing the county name and the date 1688.
