Description of the flag

History of the Buchanan County Flag

The Buchanan County Flag was designed by Chastity Robinson of Whitewood High School in December 1997. This is the first flag in the history of Buchanan County. The events surrounding the design of the county flag began in September 1997.

The county government and other county offices were often asked to display their county flag at different events throughout the state of Virginia. Since the county did not have a flag, the need to design a flag which would be representative of the county became an increasing desire of local officials.

The Buchanan County Office on Youth sponsored a flag design contest which ran for five weeks and sought entries from Buchanan County students in 6th through 12th grades up to age 19. The Office on Youth received a total of 38 entries for the contest. On December 18, 1997, the Buchanan County Board of Supervisors held a continued board meeting at the Appalachian School of Law in Grundy, Virginia. Office on Youth Director Sue Justice appeared before the Board of Supervisors and asked the board to pick a winner, second, third, and honorable mention design.

Board members examined the entries and then voted, choosing Chastity Robinson as having the winning art design; Leisha Salyer as second; Kristy Stewart as third; and Samantha Howell as honorable mention. The board then voted to accept the design as the county flag and for the purchasing department to proceed with getting the art design printed and made into a flag.

The Buchanan County flag now flies over the Buchanan County Courthouse. The flag is not only representative of Buchanan County's history but also of the youth who participated in its creations. A plaque is displayed in the Buchanan County Courthouse to recognize Chastity Robinson's contribution.
