The Municipal Flag

Concord Evening Monitor

At the last meeting of the city government, a letter was read from ex-Governor Frank W. Rollins urging the city fathers to adopt a municipal flag. This idea has been talked of in other cities, and such a flag has been adopted in many foreign and a few cities in this country.

In his letter, Governor Rollins says: "Let us adopt a flag, with a suitable emblem or device, which shall wave over our city building side by side with the Stars and Stripes, and which shall, whenever seen, mean Concord with a big C. If we send away a delegation—whether it be of the city fathers, or our police, or firemen, or our veteran firemen, or our own high school athletes, or a baseball club, or a golf team, let it be accompanied by our municipal flag, and let our representatives do their best for our lovely city, inspired by its presence, and bring it back triumphantly."
