PITTSFIELD – On Sunday, December 7, 2014 residents, officials and community leaders from the Town of Windsor will unveil the newly designed Town Flag and present it to State Senator Benjamin B. Downing (D- Pittsfield) and State Representative Paul W. Mark (D- Peru).
The legislators will then transport the Windsor flag to the Massachusetts State House, in order to present it to the Bureau of the State House on behalf of the community. Once properly cataloged by the Bureau, Windsor’s flag will be added to the impressive array of municipal 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. Two decades ago the Bureau began collecting flags from the 351 Commonwealth communities to display them throughout the Great Hall, thereby improving the acoustics of the room. With less than 20 municipal flags outstanding, the Bureau is currently working on completing its collection.
Windsor’s flag was designed by Susan Edwards, a longtime Windsor resident and noted Berkshire County artist.
