The official Ranger City Flag idea was brought to the Ranger Incorporation & Charter Signing Centennial planning committee by
Gerald Gunstanson. Gunstanson suggested a contest to be held among Ranger ISD students for the flag's design. Sixth grader, Lilliyanna Hernandez's design, which included the Ranger ISD Bulldog mascot, was selected among the 101 entries.
On April 18 , the official flag was presented to the Ranger ISD school board on behalf of the Mayor of Ranger and Ranger City Council.

History was made here 100 years ago. It happened again Saturday. LilliyAna Hernandez, 12, watched as the town’s first flag, which she designed, was hoisted up the flagpole, coming to a stop below the Texas and U.S. flags. A sixth-grader at Ranger Middle School, her flag was chosen out of 101 other submissions by public school students to a committee of civic leaders.
Images of a Texas Rangers badge, the 1917 McClesky No. 1 oil well, and a Ranger ISD Bulldog are set against a background of maroon and white diamonds. “The oil derrick is what made Ranger big,” she said."
