Warren

 

Warren County is located in southwest Ohio and consists of 407 square miles. It was created in 1803 from a portion of Hamilton County. The city of Lebanon serves as the county seat. Warren County was named for Dr. Joseph Warren, an American Revolutionary War hero. He was also the person that, in 1775, sent Paul Revere on his famous ride to alert the colonial militia that the British were coming.

 

The Warren County flag was designed by the incumbent County Engineer, Rick Pelton, in 1987. The flag is in the shape of a swallowtail burgee. How the flag was chosen and adopted is not known.

 

The meanings assigned to the flag include the following:

 

*     1803: The year the county was created

*     Building: An image of the Eiffel Tower from the Kings Island Theme Park located in Warren County

*     Stars: The 11 stars form a circle and include the names of each township in the county

*     “The Incredible County”: The county service mark

 

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.
