Jackson

 

Jackson County is located in the southeast region of Ohio and consists of 422 square miles. It was founded in 1816 and became known as the “Little Wales”. Wales is a country located in the United Kingdom and most of Jackson County’s early residents were from that region. The city of Jackson serves as the county seat. Jackson County was named in honor of Andrew Jackson, an American army officer and later the seventh president of the United States.

 

The designer of the Jackson County flag or how it was chosen is unknown. The flag has a white field and features cattails on a lake with a scenic horizon. It includes the date 1816, the year that the county was founded.

 

The Ohio Veterans Plaza at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus, Ohio, features plaques and accompanying flagpoles from each of the 88 counties in Ohio. The flags were presented at the Ohio Statehouse in 2003 during the Bicentennial flag dedication ceremonies and are now displayed annually.
