The Town of Browning, Montana, answered my request and sent me an image of the town flag. It is clearly based on the town logo, created by Lyle Omeasoo, enrolled member of the Blackfeet Nation. No further information.
About the town:
"Browning, incorporated in 1919, is located at an elevation of 4,375 feet in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Northwestern Montana. The Town is 13 miles east of what the Blackfeet call the "Backbone of the World", the magnificent Rockies and this includes Glacier National Park, the "Crown of the Continent", which shares a border with Waterton Lakes National Park in southern Alberta, Canada.
Browning is the largest community on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. The 1.5-million acre Reservation includes most of Glacier County and is home to about 8,600 members of the Blackfeet Nation, the largest tribe in Montana. The Town of Browning is the hub of the Blackfeet Reservation and the home of several tribal offices and businesses and is connected to the world by two major highways, U.S. 2 and U.S. 89. Major uses of the land include ranching and farming, with the principle crops being wheat, barley and hay. Browning is the last encampment of a proud and mighty people often referred to as "The Lords of the Great Plains"." - from town's website: http://www.browningmontana.com, where you can also see the town logo.
