The flag of Coryell County was designed by Donald K. Fisher, a member of the Commissioners' Court, and adopted on 24 February 1986 in preparation for a number of anniversary events. In gold on white it depicts the County Seal and the date of the County's creation and organization, 1854. The colors do not have any particular significance but were selected to avoid the overused red-white-blue combination.
The Seal is an adaptation of the Texas State Seal, and consists of three unevenly spaced rings. Between the outer rings appear the inscriptions "The State of Texas" and "County of Coryell." Within the inner ring appears a wreath of oak and pecan leaves around a Lone Star, the points of which are shaded on their clockwise sides.
