A design that rM designs entered for the Town of Chandler Flag Contest.  The design consisted of:  A Train along with the letters EVWR (on the side of the train) that is symbolic of the Lake Erie, Evansville & South Western Railroad, by which the foreman of that railroad was O.E. Chandler... by whom the town was named after in 1874. The following year, the first underground coal mine was opened, thus symbolized by 2 pick axes with the black mountain shape facing downward. The blue background and stars at the top are taken from the Indiana state flag, whereas the green color on the base of the flag is symbolic of Chandler... the colors together are to symbolize the town as part of the state, as well as a horizon line.
