Description of the flag

The flag of the City of Bedford, Ohio is the city logo on a white flag. This information was sent to me by Michelle Gnoddie, City Manager's Office, City of Bedford, Ohio, including an image of the city logo (seal).

About the city:
Bedford is a city in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, United States. The population was 14,214 at the 2000 census.

I had occasion to visit Bedford today to inquire about the city seal in blue on white flag reported to Valentin by a person in the City Manager's Office. I had earlier visited Bedford and found a somewhat different flag, with the seal in full color. It develops that the official flag is indeed the one in full color. The mayor evidently had the blue-on-white flags made to sell to the general public as an inexpensive alternative. As is typical in many city halls, I've discovered, even personnel who work there don't always know the facts about the city flag. The receptionist told me that they had no city flag indoors, only outdoors. No such flag was outdoors; both versions of the flag were indoors.

The seal, incidentally, depicts the central image from one of Archibald Willard's two "Spirit of '76" paintings (1875 and 1891). Willard was a native of Bedford.
