WILLIAMSON COUNTY FLAG

The stars on the flag surrounding the state of Texas represent the thirty-three viable communities identified by Clara Stearns Scarbrough in her 1973 book, Land of Good Water. In 1970, these communities ranged in population from twenty people in Norman’s Crossing to more than 10,000 residents in Taylor. It is difficult to establish how many communities exist in Williamson County today, because the determination of “community” is subjective and without set criteria. However, in Williamson County in 2004, there were eleven towns with populations of over 1,000 people and seven towns with populations above 5,000.
