Description of the flag


Northfield’s flag flies at Statehouse
By DAVID RAINVILLE Last modified: 5/21/2014

Local sixthgraders travelled to the Statehouse to see their town’s new flag unfurled. The annual field trip to Boston took on a special meaning, as the Northfield flag was inducted into the state’s Hall of Flags Tuesday.

The flag has its roots in a similar trip. “In 2009, the sixth-grade class visited the Statehouse and they noticed there wasn’t a flag for Northfield,” recalled Principal Thomas King. Those students helped to change that. After the trip, teacher Jay Loubris invited former Selectboard member Kathleen Wright to speak to the sixth-graders, and she challenged them each to come up with a design for the town’s flag.

“They were all so good, we couldn’t pick just one,” said King. So, they brought in artists Linda Jacque and Barbara Lamoine, and Jacque’s son, Cam Gribko, and they incorporated elements of several flags into one design. That flag, and a similar town seal, were adopted by voters at the 2013 annual town meeting.
