The design of the flag is a red background with a white circle
surrounding a navy blue N with 15 white stars on the N. The
stands for the state of Ohio, the N for Noble County and the
for the 15 townships in Noble County. The red, white and blue
were selected to identify with the United States of America.

This is a picture of the Big Muskie Bucket in the
Fall of 1999, as it was being moved to it's new home in the
Miner's Memorial near Caldwell I-77 Exit 25. The heavy duty
transporter is actually stuck in the road embankment because
of the heavy load, which weighed over 460,000 pounds. The
Big Muskie itself was One of the Seven Engineering Wonders
of the World and to this day the Bucket still attracts great
interest from people all over the world. To help document
this fact, the Bucket and Miner's Memorial was just designated
a Great Ohio Adventure in Learning by the State of Ohio. For
more on the Big Muskie and Miner's Memorial go to our Historical
Sites and Attractions Page. Make sure you find the Hidden
Corridor that allows you to enter the cab of Big Muskie.
