Description of the flag
From Township of Lower Merion, Pennsylvania, they do not have a digital version of their flag to send me, so they sent me the description:
"Since the Township of Lower Merion is a political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, we have adopted the state flag as our own and have added the words: "Township of Lower Merion" around the border."
- from Eileen R. Trainer, CMC, Township Secretary
About the township:
"Lower Merion Township is a township in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania and part of the Pennsylvania Main Line. As of the 2000 census, the township had a total population of 59,850, thereby ranking ninth in Pennsylvania municipalities by population. Lower Merion Township was first settled in 1682 by Welsh Quakers who were granted a tract of land (the Welsh Tract) by William Penn. In 1713, Lower Merion was established as an independent Township with about 52 landholders and tenants. In 1900, the Township was incorporated as a Township of the First Class. Lower Merion is home to the oldest continuously used place of worship in the United States, the Merion Friends Meeting House, used continuously since 1695." - from Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lower_Merion_Township,_Pennsylvania.
