The Town of Limestone has informed me it has no flag.
Valentin Poposki, 20 December 2010
Seventh-grade students at Limestone Community School started a flag contest
in November 2021 and developed a flag that was adopted in June 2022 by the town
of Limestone, Maine.
YouTube video about that flag (which includes NAVA's Ted Kaye): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaZ_BIeqZEo
A Twitter post also explains the flag from the Maine Hometown Flag Project: https://twitter.com/ME_hometownflag/status/1511703204303556613/photo/1 explains that the green represents fields, forests, and the natural environment of the Pine Tree state. The gold represents grain and hay. The brown represents potatoes and dirt/earth. It is an unusual color on flags and makes it distinct.
