The flag is a vertical red/white/blue tribar in the ratio approximately 1:4:1 with a white map of the city outlined in brown, centered on a blue, yellow, and brown compass rose. I fiddled with the image to read the motto - I think it says
"Home, that our feet may leave, but not our hearts". Southwick is in Hampden County.

Southwick has evolved from a rural farming community to a bedroom community over the last twenty years. Its close proximity to the cities of Springfield, Massachusetts and Hartford, Connecticut via routes 10, 202 and 57 has generated significant demand for new housing. Additionally, the town enjoys its status as a major recreational center because of the Congamond Lakes, Moto Cross 338 and large open space areas. Accordingly, municipal services have grown to meet the various demands of the citizenry.Dov Gutterman, 22 November 2002
