(Bel Air, MD) – – Harford County Executive David R. Craig is encouraging Harford County employees to show their support for the Baltimore Orioles and Baltimore Ravens by wearing orange on Monday’s and purple on Friday’s.

“The Baltimore Orioles are having their best year in more than a decade and are in the thick of the race for the playoffs,” said County Executive Craig. “Likewise the Baltimore Ravens are projected by many analysts to be one of the very best teams in the National Football League in 2012 and we want the teams to know we are behind them 100 percent. Harford County Government as well as the citizens throughout our great county are passionate about the Orioles and Ravens,” Craig remarked.

County employees are urged to wear orange each Monday for the remainder of the 2012 baseball season in support of the Orioles. Additionally employees will wear purple and black each Friday as they rally behind the Baltimore Ravens.

During the NFL playoffs following the 2011 football season, the Harford County Government Administration building in Bel Air was illuminated at night with purple lights as the county honored the Ravens.
