Elk County unveils new official flag to celebrate 180th anniversary


RIDGWAY – Elk County has a new flag.

Tuesday was the 180th anniversary of the county, and the new official flag was unfurled after receiving approval by the Elk County commissioners.

Martin Dornish and Stephen Bagley designed the flag which features the colors blue and gold from the Pennsylvania flag in the shape of the county, along with a red and white background from the United States flag.

An elk is at the center of the design.

State Representative Mike Armanini noted that Elk County is one of the most prominent counties in the Commonwealth, having become the powdered metal capital of the world.

Armanini also said, “I’m very proud to say that I was born and raised in that county.”
