Lorain County, Ohio, Flag

Lorain

 

Lorain County is located in northeast Ohio and consists of 923 square miles. Almost half of the square miles making up the county is water. It was created in 1822 and organized in 1824. The county seat is located in the city of Elyria. The origin of the county’s name is unknown, although some theorized that it was named after Lorraine, a region in northeast France.

 

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 white field and features an outline of the county in the center. The darker blue at the top of the outline represents Lake Erie. It can be assumed that the red star at the top of the outline represents the county seat, and the other nine starts represent the cities 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.
