We were asked to bring our County Flag to Cal Focus. We found out that Sutter County has never had a flag since it was established 161 years ago in 1850. Other attempts have been made to create a flag, but all have failed. We started by having informal discussions with County Supervisors who liked the idea and were very supportive. A county flag will support community pride and awareness. Having flags that are prominently displayed in buildings and on flagpoles in the community will achieve this purpose. And, 4-H members will have a flag to take to the Cal Focus Conference and display for Sutter County!
How will 4-H help?
The project included gaining approval for, designing, funding and procuring flags for the county. The initial project would provide 2 Indoor and 2 Outdoor Flags. With additional grant money, the project can be expanded allowing for 4 more flags to be purchased for the County.
