The flag drawn by Sarah McIntyre seems to be in part inspired by the city seal (see www.ci.north-olmsted.oh.us/seals.htm) which shows a similar, but earlier scene, with David Johnson Stearns' first cabin and the village's first school, an oxcart library, and the town hall (same building as on the flag?) on an outline of the shape of the city.
North Olmsted is in Cuyahoga County, southwest of Cleveland, Ohio. It has a population of about 34,000.
