Ingham County Flag & Seal

The Ingham County Flag

On April 9, 1985, the Ingham County Board of Commissioners adopted an Ingham County flag to serve as an emblem for Ingham County.  The flag was designed by Brian Whitfield and the Ingham County Arts Commission.

This flag consists of a white center field with wide cobalt blue bands on each side; centered in the flag is the seal of Ingham County in blue, circled by the words Ingham County, Michigan in red, which in turn is circled by a broken band of red and cobalt blue.

The Ingham County Seal

On June 9, 1970, the Official Seal  for Ingham County was adopted by the Board of Commissioners.   The seal is circular with the words, "The Great Seal of  Ingham County, Michigan", and the date "A.D. 1838" inscribed around the outside.  The central part of the seal is divided into four parts.    At the bottom is a mortar board which represents education, at the left are wheels and cogs, representing industry.  The sixteen cogs on the side represent the townships in Ingham County.  At the top is the State Capitol Dome, representing the State Seat of Government in Michigan.  At the right is an ear of corn, representing agriculture. 

The seal was designed and donated by then Commissioner Frederick L. Stackable.
