Description of the flag

Information from, compiled by the Davenport Grade School 1999-2000 school year, Class of "2006"

Lincoln County was formed on November 24, 1883, from a portion of Spokane County. This was 6 years before Washington was to become a state. Lincoln County has 1,478,400 acres of which 111,500 acres are Public Lands. County population is estimated at about 10,000 citizens with Davenport the county seat having 1,764 residents. A background of aqua-blue was used to represent our blue sky and waters of the Columbia and Spokane rivers and many streams, lakes, and ponds found in the county.

The bust of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, was used to represent our namesake. Shafts of grain on both sides of Lincoln's bust represents our county's major industry. Lincoln's bust is surrounded by gold to represent the sun which helps us provide our farmers with their bountiful crops. In preparation of the 1989 centennial of our state, a committee was authorized by the Lincoln County Commissioners in January of 1988 to design a flag to represent our county. Edith Rustermeyer of Creston headed up the volunteer committee.
