One, Rehoboth (Rehoboth Plaza near Mellon Bank) The Sussex County flag license tag comes with stainless steel screws for easy mounting. Cape Gazette Salutes Sussex On the eve of the nation's 1976 bicentennial, Bill Scott, of Selbyville and Lewes, set out to create a flag for Sussex Coun- ty, Delaware. The boundaries of the state's largest county as they existtoday were finally established just a year before the thirteen colonies of Eng- land declared their indepE=n- dence in 1776. Through the following 200 years, Sussex County had no flag nor any real need for one. The design created by Scott includes elements related to the county's earliest European settlers: the Dutch who landed and established a community in the area of Lewes in the early and mid-1600s, and the Eng- lish who later, under William Penn's guidance, confirmed that Delaware's southernmost county should be known as Sussex. Scott wrote the following background history for his design: "The flag of the Netherlands since 1630 has been equally divided horizontal stripes of red, white and blue. The flag for the county has adapted this pattern but instead of equal distance the proportions of the colors are 1/4 red (on top), 1/2 white, and 1/4 blue. The sheaf of wheat Sussex County was under the jurisdiction of William Penn, he decreed that the Sussex Coun- ty seal should be identified by the sheaf of wheat, Kent Coun- ty by ears of corn, etc. Since flag design should be as simple as possible, the sheaf of wheat is superimposed on the hori- zontal Dutch colors, thereby making a colorful and easily recognizable flag." Scott's design was present- ed to Sussex County officials on Return Day in 1974. The Cape Gazette recently ran with Scott's design idea and has created a new license tag for the front of Delaware vehicles. The newspaper joined forces with Lewes' award-winning artist Connie Costigan and commissioned a new version of Scott's design with a little artistic license. Using a representation from a stained glass window in Groome Methodist Church in Lewes as her guide, Costigan drew a shock of stalks bending under the weight of mature wheat grains. Costigan's shock was then superimposed on the Dutch colors to create the lat- est edition of the Sussex flag. This new version arrives at a time when Sussex County is focusing on the need to pre- serve its valuable farmland. The tag punctuates the histori- cal and contemporary impor- tance of agriculture to the Sus- sex community. The new Sussex County flag license tag is available free to new Cape Gazette subscribers or for the nominal fee of $3 for current subscribers. The tags are also available to nonsub- scribers at a cost of $10. The tags, metal with baked- on enamel paint to capture the vibrant colors of the Sussex County. flag, come with a pair of stainless steel screws for easy mounting. m  mmm mm m mm mlml I I'd be proud to have the new Sussex County tag. !
