I redesigned the flag of Howard County, Maryland to depict a cleaner and more modern design. No copyright infringement is intended.
It is described as “a red and white design which incorporates part of the Maryland flag.” The colors also reflect the exact colors of the flag of Maryland, including the red and gold.
The top left quarter, a “sheaf of wheat in gold symbolizes the agricultural heritage of the County” which can also be found on the original seal of Howard County dating back from 1840. The bottom left quarter depicts a golden triangle “symbolizing the unique position of Howard in the future development of the eastern seaboard.”
The flag of Howard County, Maryland was established in 1968 through a contest and was designed by Jean O. Hannon.
