PIPESTONE - Pipestone County now has its own flag. The flag features the circular county seal, selected in 1997, which former Pipestone resident Dennis Boese designed for a contest.
The flag was created at the request of PrimeWest, a county-based purchasing health plan owned by Pipestone County and 12 other rural Minnesota counties that provides health coverage to residents in the 13 member counties who qualify for Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP). PrimeWest requested flags from each of the 13 counties to be flown at its new office in Alexandria.
In addition to flying the flag at the PrimeWest office, the Board of Commissioners plans to purchase additional flags to fly at the Pipestone County Courthouse, Fairgrounds and possibly other county buildings. Sharon Hanson, Pipestone County administrator, said the flags for the courthouse and fairgrounds will likely be up before the County Fair begins the first week of August.
Hanson said PrimeWest is purchasing the flag that will be flown at their office and she is waiting to find out who their vendor is and what it will cost to purchase additional flags.
