Description of the flag

Officials present full-size Medina Township flag

As a part of this year’s June 8 Flag Day event, Medina Township trustees held a township flag design contest. The township’s residents were given the opportunity to vote for which of the submitted flag designs they like best. Medina Township resident Robert Erikson was voted as having the best design and in addition to receiving a $50 savings bond and a flag of his own design, his flag will be flown at Blakslee Park and Medina Township Town Hall for the next year.

At the Aug. 29 Medina Township Trustees meeting, officials debuted a full-sized flag of Erikson’s design and gave him an opportunity to explain his concept.

“The flag is blue based on the original Connecticut flag, because Medina Township was sectioned off from the original Connecticut Western Reserve,” Erikson said. “The ‘O’ is for the great state of Ohio, mimicking the ‘O’ from (the word) Ohio and the stripes mimic the state flag of Ohio as well. (The words) Medina Township says who we are and who we’ve come to be, and the four stars are for the four elected officials of the township, three trustees and the fiscal officer.”

The presented flag will be flown in the township until next year’s Flag Day event.
