A green flag with the town seal in the center.

The Town of North Hempstead is located on Long Island, NY, and is in Nassau County. Yesterday's issue of a local Long Island newspaper had a black & white photo of the Supervisor of the Town of North Hempstead standing in front of the
US flag, the Nassau County (NY) flag and a flag with the town seal, presumably the town flag. It had a solid field, but unfortunately I cannot say what that color was. I've tried google and other search engines to
find a color photo of the flag. The best I can do is www.house.gov/ackerman/pages/911anniv.htm where the flag is in shade, so while it looks as if it might be dark blue it could actually be dark green instead. Based on the shade of gray in the b&w photo I don't think it could be black. At least the podium in this photo has a very good image of the seal which is also on the flag.

"The Plaza’s flag, which debuted this past Veterans Day at events at the two local Atrias, is a very stylish, modern looking version of the current New York State seal, since we are an incorporated village in the state. Mayor Celender and Trustee Schneiderman spearheaded the project to create a village flag. Stated Trustee Schneiderman, “As a forward thinking Village, we wanted a flag that was true to the state seal, but with a more modern design. It has an
updated, refreshing look that I think most people will find attractive.”
