Description of the Flag

The town of Bolivar (1,045 inhabitants in 2002; 2,600 ha), located in Jefferson County, is the easternmost municipality of West Virginia. In December 1825, the settlement of Mudfort was chartered as a town and renamed Bolivar for the South American Liberator Simón Bolívar (1783-1830).

In the "Herald-Mail", 12 November 2009, Richard F. Belisle reports the hosting of the first flag of the town on 7 November 2009.
"[...]
The flag is the creation of resident Todd Metzgar. In April 2007 his design was chosen by the Town Council from among eight others that had been submitted in a flag-designing contest. Metzgar's design languished for two years until June when Bolivar's town elections put Hardy in the mayor's office and a new council in place.
[...]
Metzgar, who makes his living as a graphic designer, presented his design to the town two years ago. He wrote that he searched for elements and events that highlight Bolivar's heritage. "The challenge was in compiling these various elements into one flag to represent the past, as well as present ideals which we all cherish," he wrote. The outer field of blue and gold are West Virginia's official colors. The eagle symbolizes the United States, the shield the defense of heritage and home. The two cannons represent the Civil War Battle of Bolivar Heights when Confederate General captured 20,000 Union troops in 1862. The crossed muskets are reminiscent of the U.S. armory at Harpers Ferry as well as symbolizing Bolivar's shared history with Harpers Ferry. The star fort represents Mudfort, what the town was originally called.
