|New flag to fly over SB County|

Scotts Bluff County now has an official graphic identity as the county board approved a new county flag for use at official meetings and to fly at the courthouse.
“The decision to change the county logo was made long ago,” said Brenda Leisy, director of the Scotts Bluff Area Visitors Bureau.
“When we attend the Nebraska Association of County Officials convention, we’re the only county that doesn’t have a flag.”
The logo will appear on all county vehicles, and with a royal blue background for the official flag to fly at county buildings.
Leisy said the flags will be ordered right away because the NACO convention is coming up in December. County officials will also be able to order a flag for their offices and they will be available for purchase by other government entities and private individuals.
Leisy also announced the visitors bureau now has a mobile phone application that allows people to pull up the bureau’s website on their phones.
“We had the app designed so people can plan their vacations before they get here,” she said. “The website includes information on places to eat, lodging, shopping, golf, our convention centers, and of course our many attractions.”
Leisy said it’s important to have a mobile app available because the millennial generation will only use their smart phones or tablets to access information. For them, it’s all about technology.
The Scotts Bluff Area Visitors Bureau app is free and is available for download through Google Play and the App Store.
And all tourism packets the bureau sends out will include a card to advertise the mobile app. Leisy said the card also has a printed QR code that a person can scan with their smart phone and immediately pull up the download site.
