Mt. Washington Flag Presented at State House
July 18, 2012

MT. WASHINGTON TOWN FLAG PRESENTED AT STATE HOUSE
 
BOSTON – On Wednesday, July 18th, State Senator Benjamin B. Downing (D- Pittsfield) and State Representative William “Smitty” Pignatelli (D- Lenox) presented the Town of Mt. Washington’s new, official flag to state officials at the Massachusetts State House.
 
Once properly cataloged by state officials Mt. Washington’s flag will be added to the impressive display of community flags in the Great Hall of Flags to be admired by all State House visitors.
 
The Great Hall of Flags serves as the largest function room in the Massachusetts State House. In 1992 the agency that manages state office space, the Bureau of State Office Buildings (BSB), began collecting official flags from the 351 Commonwealth communities and hanging them throughout the Great Hall, in order to improve the acoustics of the room. 
 
Downing and Pignatelli presented Mt. Washington’s flag to BSB Superintendent John Billera.
