Description of the flag

Dark green flag with ratio ~5:8 and large seal over all (diameter: 2/3 of the flag's height). The seal shows a sunset (or sunrise) scene with snowy mountain and rolling river surrounded by a wide border divided in a white part (from 8 o'clock to 4 o'clock) reading "GREENE COUNTY" in tan serif capitals between two scrolls and a tan part (from 4 o'clock to 8 o'clock) reading "1800" and "NY" in black serif capitals separated by a double scroll; all around a thinner rim, white with black lining, filled with 51 tan fleurs de lis pointing to the outside.

This image depicts the sun setting over the Catskill Mountains and the Hudson River. The year 1800 indicates when the county was first incorporated; the green background stresses the importance of the outdoors to county residents.

This is the flag of Greene County that was in use from 1976 to 2003. I was told this by a Senior Administrative Assistant in the Green County Clerk's Office.
