The flag is a white field with a variant of the township coat of arms. being
in only blue and orange with a little bit of black for the General Store's name.
The township flag is mentioned on an archival of the history of the township on
the official website.
The color blue represents the sky, the color brown the soil and the design on
either side represent growth. The Barn represents the hard working people who
cleared the land. The hammer and anvil represent the blacksmith who with their
hard labor kept the farmers moving ahead. The General Store a necessity for
items people did not have any other way obtaining. And the long buildings
represents the churches and schools for worship and education.

The coat of arms depicts a blue shield divided into four sections. In the
first section is an old American schoolhouse. The second depicts an old general
store. The third section shows a farmer using a horse drawn plough, with the sun
setting in the background. In the fourth section shows a big red barn with a
blue grain silo, with a white fence in front of it. Under the shield is a brown
sign which has the founding year on it. The sign acts as the base for a golden
laurel wreath which surrounds most of the shield. Under the wreath is a blue
banner with the township name inscribed on it.
