The City of Rehoboth Beach is getting a new flag.
Rehoboth Beach City Manager Sharon Lynn unveiled the new City flag at a recent Commissioners’ workshop meeting, according to the city’s communications director Krys Johnson.
“The City has redesigned a flag with our new and updated City seal and our color palette. This is a new flag design that will be installed not only at City Hall on the flagpole but at other destinations that we have flagpoles around the city,” Johnson said.
Johnson says the flag includes a white backdrop with a blue border and has the city seal and the date of Rehoboth’s incorporation on it. The City of Rehoboth Beach was incorporated on March 19, 1891.
Johnson calls the new design “clean and fresh,” and she compliments Rehoboth’s brand new City Hall that opened in October 2017. The building currently houses six city departments and a meeting room for the Rehoboth Beach Commissioners; it is also ADA-compliant.
“It was a clean, fresh design with a new City Hall building that was needed. And we’re excited to have this new flag that will be installed soon. And when we do that, we’ll have an official first flag raising that will be held at City Hall,” said Johnson.
Johnson says they plan to have a flag-raising ceremony for the new City flag in the near future.
