Municipal flags in Orange County:
At the website of Orange County (NY) Community College there is a photo of three flags- the U.S., the NY State flag, and a third one, which is orange with a seal in the center. When I place my cursor on the photo I get a popup caption
"Three Flags: Orange County Flag, American Flag, and NY State Flag", thus confirming the logical suspicion that the third flag was the county flag. The photo is at www.sunyorange.edu/ssc/Learning.shtml. An image of the county seal is at the left side, top of the page, at www.co.orange.ny.us/. The seal shows an orange tree proper on a white background. Note that this image has the outer ring voided white, but the one on the flag has has the outer ring blue. The outer ring has the words "Orange County" above and "New York" below. In the inner portion of the seal are
the words "November 1683", a larger line drawing image, with this detail apparent, is at www.rootsweb.com/~nozell/ocgs/. A better image, at mentalhealth.co.orange.ny.us/images/CountyLogo.gif shows that it should actually be "1 November 1683".
