Santa Cruz County Flag

Santa Cruz County Flag

The County flag was designed by Ed Penniman, a Soquel resident. In describing the symbolism of the flag design, Mr. Penniman stated that the main symbol of the evergreen tree against a white background represents "reverence for nature and growth, upheld by a foundation of optimism and unity." The five bands in rainbow colors at the bottom of the flag represent the five county districts nonspecifically.

Although the exact date that the flag was approved by the board of supervisor's is not known, it was around September of 1986 and it went into effect 30 days later.
