Supervisors seek designs for logo, flag

Published 12:04am Sunday, February 3, 2013

NATCHEZ — When Adams County Supervisors President Darryl Grennell looks at the flagpole at the courthouse, there’s something missing.

American flag? Check.

Mississippi flag? Check.

POW-MIA flag? Got that one, too.

But an Adams County flag? There isn’t one. It doesn’t exist. The county doesn’t have an official logo, either.

That’s a situation that needs to change, Grennell said.

“We need to have an official logo for all of our documents in terms of stationery, all the county property such as vehicles should reflect the official logo of the county, and a flag is important for this community because it can inspire some pride in the community,” he said.

Grennell said the idea has been in his head for many years, and has been discussed in the past, but nothing of yet has resulted of it.

Now, Grennell said he and the board of supervisors are seeking proposals for the county flag and seal from members of the community.

Ideally, the flag and seal will incorporate facts about Adams County such as the facts that Natchez was the first organized community in Mississippi, the state’s first capital was located in Washington and the area has such resources as the Mississippi River, Grennell said.

“There is a lot of rich history and a lot of features in the area that could be embellished into the logo and flag,” he said.

“The important thing is that when an artist is designing a logo or flag, the embellishments should be properly interpreted where it is obvious what each of those items mean.”

Those who want to submit proposals or who want more information about the county to help shape their designs should come by the supervisors’ office at 314 State St. or contact the supervisors at (601) 442-2431, Grennell said.

The deadline for proposals is Feb. 28.

    I agree….also at our Sheriff’s office and Natchez Police Department. And while I support a “county” flag…..how about a Mississippi state flag in the Board of Supervisors chambers? All public buildings and government agencies who want money from them (the state) should have enough respect to fly our state flag. A couple of years ago I noticed there was no American or Mississippi flag flying at our county courthouse. Bought one each for them and within 24 hours they were back up. Then I noticed that our public school office on Homochitto had no American or state flag. One night went out and put up the American flag on their pole….(had no Mississippi flag). Soon after that the school system (at the urging of me to Dr. Benny Wright) replaced it with an wonderful American and Mississippi flag. Now both are tattered and need replacing. Hope that is done soon….as to have them flying in disrepair is an embarrassment. Anyway lets get nice county flag and be proud of our heritage and citizenship in Adams county.

    I feel that all offices(in Adams county) that take state money and not fly the state flag for whatever excuse or reason should be reported to the correct state office in Jackson ASAP and get them to cut funding till corrected !!! We don’t need a county flag but to fly the correct flags for the 82 counties having different flags to me don’t make sense to me!!!

    This is a disgrace not flying our Ms. flag at all municipal places and Grinnell is talking a county flag makes about as much sense as a box of hammers!!! Maybe we can get the legislature to make a bill to stop all state payments to these municipalities that don’t fly the state flag might get their Attn: !!!!
