Municipal flags in Indian River County:
A story at County Flag:
When county officials moved into the new administration center in October 1984, they noticed the building had three flagpoles: one each for the federal, state, and county flags. Orange County had no flag, so Commissioner Vera Carter called for a contest to design the official county flag. Over 300 entries were submitted by area residents; the only requirement was that all flags contain something that symbolized Orange County. The winner of the $500 prize was Richard Adams of Orlando, who at that time worked on audio-animatronics at Walt Disney World.
The winning entry shows a lake, orange grove, and rainbow. Orange County unveiled its flag on June 15, 1985.
