County Manager Chuck Wooten hopes to have the image replicated on county publications, flown outside the county administration building and a traveling version to represent Jackson County at statewide county gatherings.

The quest to find a flag began more than a year ago when 13-year-old aspiring eagle scout David Hopkins came before commissioners and pointed out the county didn’t have a flag.

“We have to really recognize him for pointing commissioners down this path,” Wooten said, who was also on the flag committee.
