Ohio County Flags
The state of Ohio is comprised of 88 counties as diverse as the state itself. The Ohio counties are named after a variety of
people and things. Some are named after Ohio Governors and politicians, and many have Native American names. In addition,
each of Ohio's 88 counties fly a county flag. All 88 county flags are flown at the Ohio Statehouse on special occasions
throughout the year.

This burgee is the same shape as the Ohio State Flag. The background is blue, yellow and white. The Official Seal of Scioto County appears in the center, and is reminiscent of the Great Seal of the State of Ohio. An outline of the county shape is in the middle.
This flag replaces a previous 1986 flag designed by Amy Brown, which was a white burgee.
Scioto County was established in 1803. Its name comes from the Scioto River which runs through it, and from a Native American word meaning "deer."
