Livingston County Flag

Symbolism imbedded in the Livingston County flag is the starting point for planning a new exhibit which questions “What makes a county?” The three broad areas of Natural Resources, Industries, and People will converge in this exhibit which will focus on both the past and the present. The colors of the flag symbolize the natural resources of Livingston County. Yellow is for grain/ agriculture, blue is for the Genesee River, green symbolizes the nurseries and forests, one white stripe represents salt, another white stripe symbolizes limestone, the quills represents Robert Livingston who helped draft the Declaration of Independence, and the scale is indicates Livingston’s role of the first chancellor who administered the oath of office to George Washington.
