Municipal flags in Pitt County:
Pitt County is dissatisfied with his flag. Therefore, a competition is announced. The proclamation of the competition is at www.pittcountync.gov/apps/news/article.asp?PageID=840&DeptID=26
The design has to include either the logo or the seal, without any changes. The winning design has been promised to become the flag.

Our new flag design has been adopted and is now flying in front of our County Office building. The redesign contest was covered by some local media, and a flag will also fly in Afghanistan on the base for the North Carolina National Guard's 514th Military Police Company, out of Winterville, NC. You can see the new flag at www.pittcountync.gov/apps/news/article.asp?PageID=870&DeptID=26

For people who would would like to compare the entries to see whether the entries were simple, and whether they were ageless, I include a link to the entries collection: www.flickr.com/photos/pittcountygovernment/sets/72157629890826621/with/7202913378/. There, we're also informed that "Pitt County Government's flag has gotten a facelift! Pitt County Government launched the Pitt County Flag Redesign Contest on February 1, and by the March 12 deadline, the County had received over 80 entries.
Pitt County designers, young and old, were encouraged to participate in the contest, and the Office of Public Information received entries from school children, as well as older adults. Judges from the Office of Public Information, Pitt County Schools, ECU, and the Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge narrowed down the entries to the top 3. Commissioners then voted on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners and the 1st place design was adopted as the official flag at their April 2 meeting. But, the winners were kept secret until the April 16 meeting, when the winners found out where their entries placed and received their cash prizes."

Divided blue over white, with a narrow yellow stripe along the field boundary, the seal in the upper hoist, 14 yellow triangles in an arch resembling a rising sun, and the name PITT COUNTY (in blue) and NORTH CAROLINA (in black) on the white field in a fancy irregular script.
