CASE ENTRY

Freedom from Religion Foundation, Inc. v. The County of Lehigh

Adopted in 1944, Lehigh County Pennsylvania’s official seal features images of everything from flags to books to a bison head (representing the community’s protection of hooved mammals). Oh, and the county crammed a Latin cross in there, too. An Establishment Clause violation? The Third Circuit says no. (Ed.: The county’s official flag, however, violates the fourth basic principle of vexillographic design.).
