"Grove is a city in Delaware County, Oklahoma, United States. The population was 5,131 at the 2000 census, but the 2009 estimate was 6,377." - from Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grove,_Oklahoma
About the flag: 18.08.2006:
"Grove now has an official city flag, thanks to the efforts of local citizen Connie Brewer, who came up with the idea of a city flag contest several months ago. City Council voted the winning flag from five finalists at Tuesday's meeting. The winning design was from Carl Fowler, owner of a Kansas City graphics design firm, who heard about the contest. Originally from Carl Junction, Mo. Fowler spent a lot of time on Grand Lake in previous years while growing up. The city will now solicit bids from several flag makers on a 3x5 foot flag which can be purchased by local businesses and residents."

The flag is mostly red, with an expanding blue stripe across the bottom, to represent the sky/lake horizon, a large setting sun in the hoist and a stylized image of the bridge over the Grand Lake of the Cherokees and a sailboat in black and white. The name is written on the red field in the upper hoist.
