The flag contest was held in 2012 but failed (https://www.berwyn-il.gov). When I asked about the contest, I was told by the city clerk that Berwyn does not have an official flag.

The Berwyn Historical Society's FB page posts a photo of a flag from 1972 which, according to the PDF file above, "was designed by Paul Renfus, an eighth grader at St. Odilo School, who won first place in a city-wide contest." The purpose of 2012 contest was to design "a new city flag."
