"When the National Guard committee decided to do the Walkway and Tank Display, it was suggested we have 3 flags showing the U.S., Kentucky & Livermore flags. The problem was that Livermore had no city flag. The idea was presented
to the City Council to have a contest for a design and on March 14, 1996 the Livermore City Council chose the design by Ret. PSG Richard Dale Johnson as the one to represent our town. The flag shows the city was founded in 1837 on the banks of the Green and Rough Rivers and the one-of-a-kind bridge that crosses these two rivers, beginning in one county (McLean County), crossing another county (Ohio County) and ending in the same county it began in (McLean County). The sun is for the bright future of our town, the eagle represents our nation's freedoms and the stars represent the two rivers, as well as the two counties the bridge crosses. The flag was displayed to the public and raised for the first time on June 29, 1996."
