Flag used at sesquicentennial celebrations

[Former Flag of Allamakee County, Iowa] image by António Martins-Tuválkin, 31 August 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 Cherokee County are still at and It is a ~5:9 plain light (white) flag showing a large, mostly empty, emblem drawn in a single darker shade. This emblem shows a voided outline map of the county with the Mississippi River, along its eastern boundary, in solid dark color - the other three boundary lines are orthogonal straight lines. Along the western outer edge of the map, the writing "Allamakee 150", referring to the county's sesquicentennial anniversary, set vertically but with straight up letters in dark bold sans-serif capitals. On the map itself several landmarks are placed, seemingly on the locations they refer to:

  • spanning across the river, slightly above the middle, a representation of the interesting Black Hawk Bridge
  • on the NE corner something small that may be a oil rig, an obelisk, or any kind of tower, slightly overlapping into Minnesota
  • a deer solid outline, facing the fly, on the NW part of the county
  • a turkey solid outline on the center, slightly towards NE
  • an iconic Native American head profile solid outline on the center, slightly towards SW
  • a farm complex, with barn, grain elevator, farmer's house, and tree copse, at the SW corner
  • a copse of firs and snaking northwards towards it what may be a file of animals, or a train, at the SE corner
