Monkton Picks A Town Flag

The town of Monkton has selected a town flag to be dedicated on the town's 250th anniversary this summer.
On Town Meeting Day, voters weighed in on their top three favorite of five designs chosen from a larger pool submitted by community members.
The winning design was created by Mount Abraham Union High School art teacher Linda Reynolds. It depicts farm fields, mountains and ponds. Reynold's design was the first choice for 70 percent of the voters, and was in the top three for 89 percent of those who chose to vote.
The flag was not part of the official Town Meeting Day ballot, but two-thirds of residents still weighed in.
People in Monkton will be able to order their own town flag for the anniversary celebration on June 24th, and the design will also be turned into a postmark for that day.
