Designed in 2002 at the request of the Ohio Bicentennial Commission, this white flag features the name of the county. The apple reminds us of John Chapman or "Johnny Appleseed," who crossed the area planting apple trees in the 1800's. Richland County was established in 1808. It was named because of the rich soil found there.
