Description of the flag
The Conover City flag is described at www.ncgenweb.us/conover/flagseal.htm:
The green background reflects the arbor canopy of the city. The blue (see note) and white
lines form a Y representing the Y intersection of the railroad. The seal is placed on the Y intersection representing where Conover essentially began. The Conover City Seal contains the following elements:
Both the Seal (1992) and Flag (1997) were designed by Randolph S. Williams, AICP, Planning Director for Conover.
- The blue "C" forming the border represents Conover.
- The gazebo in the upper half of the center is the gazebo in Downtown Park and is a focal point in downtown.
- The train facing backwards symbolizes the city's beginnings where the city's first buildings were constructed at the Y intersection of the railroad.
- The truck facing forward symbolizes the diversified industrial base which strengthens our future.
- The tree between the train and truck shows Conover's commitment to the environment and arbor canopy in our neighborhoods.
- The date "1876-77" is the charter by the citizens (1876) and the incorporation by the North Carolina Assembly (1877).
- The banner and phrase "Community and Industry" represents the two strongest elements that make our city admirable.
- The diamonds circling the seal with the connecting diamond at the bottom communicates all the different aspects of the city coming together to form a high quality of life in Conover.
