Somerset is in Bristol County, southeastern Massachusetts. The flag is white
with the town seal bearing an illustration of two figures and date of incorporation, and in the outer ring the town and state name.

The Somerset Police Department debuted its honor guard in June 2009, according to a news article found online at www.southcoasttoday.com. The article also includes a photograph of the honor guard marching in a parade carrying the American flag and a white flag with a device in the center. While the article does not specify the identity of the white
flag, some research and comparison of the device at the center with known Somerset-associated insignia points to this flag being the flag of the Somerset Police Department. A second photograph, found on the Somerset Police Department website confirms this suspicion.
The flag of the Somerset Police Department features the department's shoulder patch displayed on a white field.
