That's right. The Hamlet of Hampton Bays has its own flag, created in 1999 through a contest sponsored by the Hampton Bays Beautification Association.
The association, at the time run by Maud Kramer, put a call out for flag designs in an effort to boost community spirit and received numerous submissions.
The winning flag was designed by Cathy Dignus, of Hampton Bays.
The red, white and blue flag features and anchor in the center with the words, "settled in 1740" and the letter "H" in the upper left-hand corner.
For her design, Dignus was awarded the Citizens Achievement Award by the Town of Southampton on July 13, 1999.
Since the 3' by 5' flag was first released, about 200 of them have been sold, according to John West, sales manager for the Westhampton-Beach based Nautique flag shop.
The shop no longer had a storefront, however, West said, the flags are still available for sale for $49.90 each.
"We have a stock of them out in Westhampton Beach," said West, who said Nautique now operates from New York City.
