Hawthorne is known as the City of Good Neighbors. The flag has the seal on it. The four rectangles represent our community. They are as follows:
Left-top corner - We ran our own water system but unfortunately due to bad economic times we had to lease it to generate some income.
Right-top corner - We run our own airport that is next to Northrop Grumman. This company was responsible for many of the aircraft up in the air. Northrop sold this part of the company to Vought Aircraft a few years ago but the airport is still city run.
Left-bottom corner - Our community is a melting pot of people performing many roles that make our city run smooth (ie - fire fighters, police officers, sanitation, public works, etc)
Right-top corner - This corner represents industry from the mom and pop store to major corporations. Business creates tax dollars which is the life blood of the city. As the wheel of progress turns, so does the progress of of the improving the quality of life.
