Description of the flag:
In the center of the white background is the bust of a Revolutionary infantryman in full dres with his head turned to the left. Two green garlands, representing the traditional laurel honor, frame the bust. The inscriptions are self-explanatory. The winning design, adopted in 1968, was submitted by Suzanne Juroszewski, who at the time was a sophomore at Trumbull High School.

While the official life of our Town is a mere 175 years, the people who have woven this tapestry were here more than a hundred years before that time, populated our Town with their descendants and attracted others who brought the strengths of other ancestors to us. Our Town Flag, adopted just four years ago, carries our motto, a motto indeed most apropos to the people of our Town, for it is our wonderful heritage that gives us PRIDE IN OUR PAST; it is our tremendous potential that gives us FAITH IN OUR FUTURE...
Clarence F. Helmann, 1972
