Find the Tennessee flag
We have hidden somewhere in this magazine the icon from the Tennessee flag like the one pictured here. It could be larger or smaller than this, and it could be in black and white or any color. If you find it, send us a postcard or email us with the page number where it’s located. Include your name, address, phone number and electric cooperative. One entry per person. Three winners will be chosen from a random drawing, and each will receive $20.
Note that the icon we hide will not be on an actual flag or historical marker, will not appear on pages 20-26 and will not be placed in any ads. This month’s flag will not appear on this page (that would just be too easy). Good luck!
Send POSTCARDS ONLY (no phone calls, please) to: The Tennessee Magazine, Find the Flag, P.O. Box 100912, Nashville, TN 37224. Or email entries to [email protected]. Entries must be postmarked by Friday, Dec. 30. Winners will be published in the February issue of The Tennessee Magazine.

Mary Alice Harris, Atoka, Southwest Tennessee EMC
