Description of the flag

According to NAVA-News IX:4, the flag of Oldham County was adopted in 1974. Green is for the fields of Oldham County. The fountain, a heraldic symbol for a poor or spring, represents LaGrange as the county seat. It was founded by William Berry Taylor on the site of what was known as "The Public Spring". The yellow ring shape represents the sun and suggests the letter "O", the first letter in the county's name. The red cross of Saint George symbolizes the crossroads location of LaGrange. The cross was also featured in the coat of arms of Colonial Virginia, where the county's namesake was born, Colonel William Oldham. The designer is Dick Crossett, who was a free-lance advertising designer in Louisville, KY and vexillologist.
