The official flag of Bernards Township

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.
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.

James Fogleman, Bernards Township Resident who designed the original Bernards township flag

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.

As the Township Historian, I think this is a fantastic way to share the pride and history of our town and build a relationship with our kids and residents about local history. I really hope the public gets behind this as it’s never been done before.”

Brooks Betz, Bernards Township Historian

  1. While at the Bernards Library I picked up the information about our flag and found your website today. I am wondering if the flags are for sale so they can be displayed at our home. I had no idea Basking Ridge had its own flag and reading the history was very interesting. Thanks for your interest in our community. Barbara
