Description of the flag

A blue-white-red vertical tricolor, with a disc showing a sunrise(?) over a cropped wheat field, edged with a ring saying above "*FRANKLIN COUNTY *" and "OHIO" below; below the disc a stylized scroll with "WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE"; all is lined dark blue on the white background.

This is definitely a sunrise, and not a sunset. Ohio was the first U.S. state west of the Appalachian mountains, and this is indicated in the great seal of Ohio by the sunrise.

This flag was adopted by Franklin County on April 30, 1987. This red, white and blue flag is reminiscent of the French Flag, and also of the flag of the City of Columbus, which is the county seat. The seal of Franklin County is printed blue on white in the middle. The picture and the motto are the same as those used by the State of Ohio, and remind us that state government is centered in Columbus, Ohio. Franklin County was established in 1803 with the birth of the state. Both celebrated their bicentennials in 2003. The county was named after founding father, Benjamin Franklin.
