Where to find them
In the United States, municipal flags are most often flown outside city halls and town squares. Sometimes they are also flown in municipally owned parks, airports, or stadiums, or near town welcome signs along major roads. In virtually all cases they are accompanied by the American flag, and often by a state flag as well.
Indicate the specific flag or flag design using the flag:name=* and/or flag:wikidata=* tag. To accommodate renderers that are unable to incorporate flag designs from Wikidata, set flag:colour=* to the flag's dominant color, such as the color of its field.
