Using design elements chosen last year by Arnett Muldrow and Associates as part of the Blissfield Main Street image and branding exercise. The Main Street Program was the recipient of a branding services grant from the Michigan Main Street Center.
The flag, a dark blue, says “Blissfield” in scripted lettering in a yellow across it. It includes the newly adopted log that shows a sunburst with farm fields on it .
Blissfield Village Administrator Jim Wonacott said the village will initially have a flag for both the council chambers and one to adorn the flagpole in front of the lane Street village office. Plans are to have the flags ordered soon.
