Municipal flags in Schoharie County:
On June 17th, I visited the Old Stone Fort Museum in Schoharie, New York, where I was sent after visiting the main Schoharie County office building. After speaking with Mr. Carle Kopecky, the director of the museum, I found that,
surprisingly, Schoharie County has no flag! As far as I know thus far, it is the only county in New York State that does not have a flag. It does, however, have a seal, which was adopted in 1842 after a state constitutional amendment
incorporated separate, smaller counties into present-day Schoharie County, though this seal is not the present-day seal. It is unknown when or why the Board of Supervisors changed the County seal.
