Municipal flags in Delaware County:
image by António Martins-Tuválkin, 12 November 2010
Back in 2002, the Iowa State Association of Counties website hosted an account of each county's history, signed by its County Recorder, and illustrated with a black and white flag image. It is not clear whether these flag images were provided by the county administration or not.
Archived copies of the pages about Delaware Taylor are still at web.archive.org/web/*/www.iowacounties.org/County+Info/History+Pages/delaware.htm and web.archive.org/web/*/www.iowacounties.org/County+Info/Flags/Delaware.htm. It is a ~3:5 white (?) flag with the lettering "Delaware" in black (?) serif capitals along the top, and a pattern of wavy horizontal stripes (six are visible) and five-pointed stars (10 visible), suggesting a national US flag fluttering in the wind.

John Johnson has a color image of this flag and sent it to me. The background is indeed white and the letters black - as expected, the stars are blue (Old Glory very very dark shade) and the stripes are red (Old Glory dark shade).
