In the "Daily
Courier", 6 March 2006, Mark Hofman reports that Harry Young Cochran, of
Connellsville, "has donated a flag from the city's sesquicentennial celebration
to the Carnegie Free Library in order for it to be displayed during this year's
Cochran obtained the flag from his father, the late Harry Cochran, an automobile dealership owner who was involved with the sesquicentennial celebration. He provided vehicles for the parade 50 years ago.
The blue and yellow flag comes complete with a star in the center of a circle surrounded by different places and symbols, including coke ovens, the Connellsville Airport, Connellsville High School and Junior High West, Anchor Hocking, the railroads and a barn representing agriculture -- the county and the state's No. 1 industry then and now. The flag also shows the days that the sesquicentennial celebration took place -- Aug. 10 and 16, 1956. The city was founded March 1, 1806, by Zachariah Connell.

DOIT launches contest for town flagNed Smith, 14 August 2005
By Dale Heberlig,July 27, 2005
A downtown group is sponsoring a contest to design a "town flag" that could be adopted as the official municipal banner for Shippensburg — much like the state's Keystone flag and the nation's Old Glory. Lizzie Bailey of Downtown Organizations Investing Together announced the contest at a recent meeting of Shippensburg Borough Council, asking council to consider authorizing the winning design as the borough's official flag. "Since this is Shippensburg's 275th anniversary, we would like the borough to adopt the flag as official," Bailey said. "We will provide a flag with the design for the borough to fly." Council President Earl Parshall said the issue would be included on council's August agenda.
Bailey says flag designs must be submitted by Sept. 15 on paper or electronically. The flag designs must be original and revolve around the theme of a visual representation of the "essence" of Shippensburg, which she describes as a blend of history, community and notable landmarks. The contest is open to individuals, groups and organizations. A cash prize is offered. The winner will be announced at a black bean soup cookoff that DOIT plans downtown Oct.1.
