Other variants of the flag are green or red.

Each a mono-coloured field with the seal in black in the centre. I'm not entirely sure what these are. If the City of Waukesha have indeed adopted three versions of a city flag, they are rather quiet about it. Any mention of "the flag" on their web site seems to refer to the Stars & Stripes, and according to their Sign Chart, it would appear to be prohibited to even fly one such flag (not being the U.S. flag, the Wisconsin flag, or a flag with the logo for the business).

Looking at it from the other side: There are more cities that pay little attention to their own flag. I find that somewhat curious, as it doesn't make much sense to adopt a flag if you're not going to use it. It's after all supposed to be the symbol representing the city, so you'd expect it to be treated with the same pride people have for their city. But, apparently some cities see things differently.

Yet, the other side has an other side as well: If they didn't really care about their flag, would they have three different versions of it?
