Description of the Flag

The Borough of Berwick, Pennsylvania, recently adopted its flag:

"Earlier this year our sister city, Berwick-upon-Tweed, in England asked the Borough of Berwick, Pennsylvania if we had an official flag for our community. Since our Borough did not have a flag at that time a group of residents, headed by Councilman Jim Meighan, designed and produced a Borough flag. The design on the flag is from Neil Kepner's 1986 sketch for Berwick's bicentennial. This design also appears on official stationery of the Borough of Berwick and Borough Police patches. Councilman Meighan developed the flag quickly and then sent the flag to Berwick-upon-Tweed. He wanted the flag to make it there before Berwick-upon-Tweed's annual springtime parade. In May the flag was voted on and approved to be the official flag of Berwick. This flag may be flown at schools, offices, and homes." - from:
