Description of the flag

The City of Hancock, planted in 1859, is a progressive community, located on the north shore of the Portage Lake Canal in northern Houghton County, Michigan. Hancock is the northernmost city in Michigan. With a population of approximately 4,900, Hancock provides a superior location to live, work and play. The City's proximity to majestic Lake Superior gives it beautiful mild summers and wonderful snowy winters. The City of Hancock has a strong Finnish heritage. From Suomi College to the saunas scattered throughout many homes, you will find the Finnish heritage embedded in our community. [Note also the Finnish flag depicted on the city flag.] The city flag is the city emblem on white.
