Fremont County Flag

The Fremont County Flag was designed at the same time the Fremont County Courthouse was being built, in the early 1960s. It was designed by Janet Poole (now Janet Nelson), a Cañon City resident. Janet designed the flag while still in high school, as part of a contest.

The flag represents the mild climate and attractive scenery of the County. The broad yellow stripe represents sunshine and hospitality. The brown mountain peak represents the mountains, and the blue stripes represent the streams that flow down from the mountains.
