"Plano is a city in Kendall County, Illinois, United States near Aurora, Illinois, with a population of 5,633 at the 2000 census." - from Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plano,_Illinois
About the flag: "At the July 11 city council meeting, the City of Plano unveiled its new flag, designed by Waubonsee Community College student Justin Koczo. His design highlights the city's designation as "birthplace of the harvester" and incorporates images of wheat. Shortly after Waubonsee's new Plano Campus opened for classes in January, city officials approached the college, asking its students to submit flag designs. Seventeen graphic design students answered the call, researching the city and translating that information into images. After Plano and Waubonsee officials narrowed the 17 designs down to six finalists, Plano residents made the final decision by voting at ballot boxes throughout town. In the end, it was the concept of graphic design major and Plano resident Koczo that proved most popular, getting 172 of the more than 400 votes cast." - from www.waubonsee.edu/news/archive/2011/20110712planoFlag.php including a small graphic design of the flag.
The flag is a horizontal triband, purple-white-purple, 1-3-1, with the name in a scripted font and incorporating the heads of wheat.
