Municipal flags in Athens County:
A green field with the county seal at the center, name above in white, year 1805 below, and objects reflecting the local economy in the hoist and fly.
Phil Nelson, 9 November 2003
This green flag shows symbols from the local economy, a mill, railroad engine, bicycle, coal car and wheat. A cap and diploma remind us of education and Ohio University. The county seal in the center is circled by fourteen green stars and shows the skyline of a city and a river. 1805 is the year Athens County was established. It was named after Athens, Greece, an early democratic city.
