Description of the flag

Louisville and Jefferson County merged into a metro government in January 2003. This is the document enacting their seal and flag.
Paul W. Newton, 7 May 2004

A blue flag, with the seal centered - a large gold fleur-de-lis, two gold stars, the date 1778 in blue, LOUISVILLE JEFFERSON COUNTY in gold, and METRO in white on a blue background all written around the rim.


Former flags of Louisville - before merge

The stars represented the 13 states which existed at Louisville's founding in 1778, while Kentucky was part of Virginia. The fleur-de-lis are in honor of King Louis XVI of France, after whom Louisville was named because of the support of France during the American Revolution.
