The flag of the Town of Southington, Connecticut, is blue with the town seal centered on it. The town flag story begun in 1968 when the Southington Historical Society researched and found out that the town never had a flag. So, they recommended to the Town Council to adopt a flag which will bear a town seal either on white or blue field. After some further re-thinking, the Council on its meeting on 27.05.1968 adopted the town flag, which is the town seal on a blue field. Photo of the flag and documentation about its adoption thanks to Kathy Larkin, Deputy Town Clerk.
"Southington is a town in Hartford County, Connecticut, United States. It is part of Connecticut's 1st congressional district. It is situated about 20 miles southwest of Hartford, about 80 miles northeast of New York City, 105 miles southwest of Boston and 77 miles west of Providence. Southington includes the areas of Plantsville, Marion and Milldale, each of which has its own post office and distinct architecture. The town rests in a valley of two mountains on its east and west sides. The town is located along exits 28 through 32 of Interstate 84, exit 4 of Interstate 691, and bisected by Route 10. Southington has the nick name of The Apple Valley, due to the many orchards that still dot its landscape. The Quinnipiac River flows through the town. It is home to Mount Southington Ski Area and ESPN, which straddles the Bristol/Southington town lines." - from Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southington,_Connecticut.
