Logan County, Ohio, Flag

Jul 29th, 2018

Logan

 

Logan County is located in the Mideast region of Ohio and consists of 467 square miles. It was founded in 1818 and Bellefontaine was chosen to serve as the county seat. Logan County was named for Benjamin Logan, an American soldier from Kentucky that fought Indians in the area.

 

Nothing is known about the history of the county flag, but it can be assumed that it was created in response to a request for county flags by the state. The flag has a blue field and features an outline of the state of Ohio in the Center. The 17 red stars surrounding the outline most likely represent the 17 townships located in the county.

 

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.
