Municipal flags in Marshall County:
The flag is a white field with a dark blue border. In the middle is the
outline of John Marshall. A golden oval with a white outline surrounds the head
in the background. two square golden holders connect the oval to a ribbon below.
The left holder contains the word "PRIDE" while the right column has the word
"PROGRESS". Under the columns is a white ribbon with two black stars on both
ends. the name of John Marshall is inscripted in the white ribbon. On ether
sides of the image is the year "1835", with "18" on the left and "35" on the
right. At the top of the image is a golden ribbon with the text "COUNTY OF
MARSHALL" on it. At the bottom is the states name.
I had a chat with the Marshall County WV Historical Society on Facebook where they said that the flag may have been adopted in 1973. They also have the county flag as a part of their collection. The flag is also located at the county commission.
