Supervisors seek designs for logo, flag

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.
