If you walked around Downtown Leesburg on Valentine's Day, you may have noticed the love symbol along King Street businesses.

On Tuesday, the Town of Leesburg shared the heart-warming photos around town where the hearts showed up.

The photos received positive feedback on social media. People expressed their gratitude and also made guesses as to who may have spread the love messages throughout the town. Many guesses seemed to point to the famous "Flag Man" who shares flags and stuffed animals throughout Leesburg. He typically puts them on telephone polls and at crosswalks. This guess has not been confirmed, however.

What we do know are the pink and red hearts was a simple gesture that delivered a heart-felt message to all in the community. This isn't the first time the town has had positive messages appear. During the pandemic, uplifting messages also showed up throughout storefronts and the streets of town. The messages appeared on painted stones, also known as kindness rocks.
