Description of the flag

The legal description from the county code states:

Carroll County
23 [3A-1.] 3-103. County Flag.

The official flag of Carroll County, Maryland, is described as a silhouette of the County Seal on a white field having a border on three sides of blue, with the official seal of Carroll County, consisting of three concentric circles, one with a band of red forming the outer circle, the second separated from the first by a ring of white and formed by a broad band of blue with the inscription "Carroll County, Maryland" in white inserted between the inner and outer circles on the band of blue which forms the second circle also having two white stylized six-leaved blossoms located, one each, on opposite sides of the same space between the inner and outer circles, and a third and inner circle separated from the second by a ring of white and formed by a ring of black within which is a replica in brown of the four-horse freight wagon with white cover with the year 1837 imposed above the wagon, this year being the time of the creation of Carroll County from parts of Frederick and  Baltimore Counties.

Based on the photograph at (photo:, the Carroll County flag seems to have a thicker dark blue border than we show on FOTW, and the border appears to be on all four sides, even accounting for the dark blue sleeve holding the flag to the staff, particularly when compared to the border on the Westminster city flag right next to it.

Carroll County is in north central Maryland and is named for Charles Carroll, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

The flag of the Carroll County Sheriff's Office features the sheriff's office badge centered on a blue field. The badge is a seven-pointed yellow/gold star with the county seal in the center of the star, along with the words "SHERIFF'S OFFICE" in black letters arching above and below the county seal. The words are repeated in yellow letters above the badge on the blue field, with the words "CARROLL COUNTY" below the badge.
