The Pickaway County flag was designed by senior citizen Jim Sargent in February 2002 as part of the Bicentennial Celebration. It is the result of a contest open to all residents of the county. Sargent chose the colors gold, orange and green to represent the fall season which is important because of the Circleville Pumpkin Show. A gold circle refers to the name of the county seat, Circleville. The county appears as an orange shape on the white outline of the State of Ohio. Fifteen townships are marked on the county map. The pumpkin reminds us again of the annual Pumpkin Show. Sargent chose the rectangular shape with green and white stripes to make a good background for the gold circle. Pickaway County was established in 1810. The name is a variation of the Piqua tribe of Native Americans.
