Description of the Flag

The flag of the City of Covington, Georgia, has a white background, dark-blue border, then another wider white border and then another red line border. In the middle is positioned city seal and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" in blue below the seal. Photo was send to me by the City Clerk Audra Gutierrez, who inform me that the flag was adopted at the May 17, 1993 council meeting.

About the city:
"Covington is a city in Newton County, Georgia, United States. The population was 11,547 as of the 2000 census. Census Estimates of 2005 indicate a population of 13,856. The city is the county seat of Newton County. Incorporated in 1822, Covington was named for General Leonard Covington, a hero of the War of 1812. The city grew with the advent of the railroad in 1845, and in 1864, General Sherman's troops marched through during their March to the Sea. Although the city was looted, several antebellum homes were spared." - from Wikipedia:,_Georgia.

Covington adopted a new logo in 2017.
However, I've found only a single photo of a logo-based flag. (The seal-based flag is still being used in the city council hall)

I've been told by City Clerk Audra Gutierrez that the logo-based flag is used for ceremonial purposes, such as the Parade of Flags of the annual conference of the Georgia Municipal Association.
