By resolution, the city of Bath, Maine has formally adopted a flag designed by myself and the city’s flag committee. You can read about the design rationale on my blog.

Be it resolved by the City Council of the City of Bath, with appreciation to those involved in the development of an official flag for the City of Bath, which reflects the pride and heritage of the City and which presents an ongoing representation of this pride and heritage, that it does hereby adopt as the official flag for the City of Bath, a flag that shall be a rectangle in the ratio of three (3) units on the hoist to five (5) unites on the flay, divided in half horizontally, Old Glory Red over white.
