Description of the flag

Sourced from http://www.chestertelegraph.org/2016/09/14/chester-board-considers-sex-offender-ordinance/, September 2016. From that page, the flag was made by David Shuffleburg of Springfield who applied the concepts of heraldry to a "town flag." The flag shows three lines symbolizing three branches of the Williams River becoming one in Chester with the shield of the Earls of Chester and the lion of the Chandler family crest. The Chandlers were early settlers of the town who took a hand in asking for a New York patent for New Flamstead, which they organized under a New Hampshire grant. Hildreth also joked the three lines might also represent the three founding dates the town can claim.
