Description of the flag

The Town of Colonie, in Albany County, New York, has a town flag consisting of the Town Seal on a white field. A photo of it flying in front of their Public Safety and Justice Building can be seen at www.colonie.org/tour/images/pubsaf.jpg. A good graphic of the Town Seal can be found at www.colonie.org/historian/seal2.gif and a history of the seal and explanation of its symbolism is at www.colonie.org/historian/seal.html (summarized below):

  • The Town Seal was officially adopted on May 8, 1941.
  • The Indian Head in the upper left-hand corner of the seal represents the first inhabitants of the Town.
  • The Sheaf of Wheat in the upper right represents the predominant occupation in the town when it was incorporated- 1895.
  • The fort in the lower left-hand corner represents the origin of the name, Colonie, which meant "the Settlement outside the city."
  • In the lower right corner is a windmill, representing the Dutch heritage of the area's first permanent [European] settlers.
  • The Wampum circle surrounding the seal represents the trade routes that pass through the Town, and the laurel and leaf symbolize a future of success and plenty.
