Parks Commissioner Mauro Tucci presented the community with a hand-refurbished Town Flag. Tucci told how the flag's design was commissioned in 1956 by then Mayor Harry W. Chenoweth in concert with the Nutley Historical Society and its director, Ann Troy. The flag was designed by artist Vivian Fikus. Tucci explained that the symbolism of the flag with its three large red acorns, each depicting a different era in the area's history. The flag's three broad red stripes make reference to the Third River.
