Long Description:
This City Flag is located in front of the Syracuse City Police Department building, located at 1751 South 2000 West. It is located north of the City Hall. There is also a City Flag located at City Hall, however, it seemed that the wind wasn't nearly as strong there, in order to get a decent picture - at least not on the day I was there.

A little history of Syracuse, Utah:

Syracuse is a city in northwest Davis County, Utah, situated between the Great Salt Lake and Interstate 15, about 25 miles north of Salt Lake City.

Syracuse was incorporated on September 3, 1935.

William Galbraith, a salt maker on the lake, printed the name Syracuse on his salt bags. The name came from a salt company he knew of in Syracuse, New York. The name was later used by the Syracuse Bathing Resort, built in 1887 by Daniel C. Adams. He was determined to have the finest resort on the lake, and was the only spot along the shore of the Great Salt Lake with a natural grove of trees. The Union Pacific Railroad, constructed the Ogden and Syracuse Railway in 1887. The railway linked the Syracuse Resort to the main line between Ogden and Salt Lake City. The name "Syracuse" was subsequently adopted as the name of our city.

Syracuse became linked to Antelope Island State Park in 1969, with construction of a causeway. A new and improved road to Antelope Island has brought an influx of tourists through the heart of Syracuse. Today, Syracuse is rapidly changing from a farming community to an urban community. Old time residents have mixed feelings about what this might bring, but as the saying goes, "you can't stop progress, only give it good direction".
