This 3' x 5' Nylon Flag proudly displays the Cohasset Town Seal.

(as descirbed in the First Narrative History of Cohasset".c.1898)

The scene with its ledges and breakers illustrates the meaning of the word Cohasset - "A long-rocky- place". Minot Lighthouse and White Head are shown with two old fishing schooners at the entrance of the harbor. The three buildings, Town Hall, Osgood School, and First Church, symbolize the three functions of town life - the municipal, the educational, and the religious.
