Description of the Flag

A white flag showing the city seal.
Masao Okazaki, 23 August 2020

See for an historical account of the Great Locomotive Chase alluded to on the flag.
See for a comprehensive account of the event.

According to both sources (and many other), the chasing locomotive used in Adairsville was named "Texas" and not "Texan" as written on the flag.
The mistake should be credited to the flag's manufacturer since the original seal is, correctly, inscribed "TEXAS". Masao's image is therefore correctly reproducing the flag with the mistaken writing.
