San Lorenzo has gone through a lot of changes since it first became the San Lorenzo township in 1854. Today, it has undergone another change with the creation of an unofficial community flag.
The flag was chosen through a town-wide flag contest. Entries were made by school children as well as adults. A committee of five San Lorenzo residents comprised of the town historian, two artist, a business professional and a town activist/volunteer were the judges. The judges met at Ichi's Japanese Restaurant in San Lorenzo and made a unanimous decision as to the winning flag design. After some edits to the flag, a final flag was chosen.
The winner, Marcy Weiss is a designer and photographer. Her flag was created in Adobe Illustrator. Marcy Weiss' inspiration came from city flags across America. Her design aesthetic was clean, bold and clear messaging.

As an historical note, the color of the flag is Stormy Ocean Blue.
This year will mark the 70th anniversary of the ground breaking of the San Lorenzo Village. But the township of San Lorenzo is more than just the Village (which is a portion of San Lorenzo proper). This flag represents the entire town.
Stay tuned for the date of the flag raising ceremony.
