Four rectangles of gold and red that stand for the four communities of which Bernards is composed: Basking Ridge, Liberty Corner, Lyons and West Millington. Bound in white, symbolic of purity and truth, the red is for the blood of life and the gold is for a prosperous and flourishing community. White is for purity.James Fogleman, Bernards Township Resident who designed the original Bernards township flag
Two enormous oak leafs adorning the red-gold field represent the township’s old oak tree, a symbol of strength, sturdiness and character. The twin oak leaves also stand for the township’s 200 years.
Connecting our residents and students to their geography and local history the Mr. Local History Project is asking for help. To preserve and promote Bernards Township’s pride and history the MLH Project wants to give a custom made Bernards Township flag to every 5th grade student in Cedar Hill, Liberty Corner, Mt. Prospect, and Oak Street school over multiple years until every student has a Bernards Township.
Every dollar donated to Project Ambassador will be dedicated to acquire as many #bernardsflags as we can first for our students, then for the public. So every $$$$ helps the community effort. A online donation button has been set up specifically for this project (see below). GIVE WHATEVER YOU CAN!
If you’re part of a PTO organization and want to help, please drop us a note with your details if you’d like to participate and support.
