At http://chesapeake-beach.md.us/electedofficials_towncouncil.htm was (now changed) a photograph of the town council for Chesapeake Beach, the white flag by default would be the town flag and appears to consist of the town seal on the white field.
Chesapeake Beach was founded by the Washington and Chesapeake Beach Railway Company in 1894 as a resort community for people to go during the hot Washington DC summers. However, the railway was completed by the Chesapeake Beach Railway Company in June 1900 and continued in operation until 1935.

The town is one of two towns located in Calvert County, Maryland and is adjacent to the other incorporated town of North Beach. It is home to the local railway museum and a water park.
