Windsor Town Flag to Hang at State House Hall
December 08, 2014
Historical Commission Chairwoman Deborah Balmuth presented the town's new flag to state Sen. Benjamin B. Downing and state Rep. Paul Mark on Sunday. The flag, said the Rev. Alex Hunter of the Congregational Church, "will always symbolize we are one town, one people." More than two dozen residents attended the short unveiling ceremony at Town Hall. The flag was designed by Susan Edwards, a retired artist and graphic designer.
The Historical Commission solicited ideas from local artists with the criteria they include elements of the town's topography, natural resources and — snow. "The challenge was to come up with a design simple enough for a flag but also to include the name of our town and the incorporation date," said Balmuth. "And Sue did such a lovely job doing this."
The flag has three horizontal bars — blue on top to show the sky and the town's elevation, a layer of white for snow and green for its natural resources. Fir trees in shades of gray and the town's name and incorporation date complete the design. "I designed it to be simple but timeless," said Edwards, who has a studio in town.
