[Former Flag of Dickinson County, Iowa] image by António Martins-Tuválkin, 19 December 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 Dickinson County are still at*/ and*/ It is a ~11:20 plain light (white?) flag showing an emblem and lettering. The lettering reads "Dickinson" in black (?) serif capitals along the top. The emblem consists of a stylized sun with four elements inside its disc. The sun is white (?), disc and rays outlined in black, and has 12 triangular rays, aligned cardinally and touching each other at the base, tips touching an imaginary circle whose diameter is ~3/2s larger than the disc’s diameter. Inside the sun disc, set in a 2×2 grid, there are four icons symbolizing local attractions, those on the bottom bleeding outside the disc contour: an cob of corn on the top hoist quadrant, an ice skating boot with its blade on the top fly quadrant, a wooden fort with a flag on its roof peak on the bottom hoist quadrant, and a camping tent between two firs on the bottom fly quadrant.

According to the booklet [u9s03b] (3rd and 4th images of the 2nd row of page 4), the flag is white and the lettering is blue; the sunrays are filled in yellow and its disc is divided in 4 quadrants by a thin yellow line. Inside, the ski boot, the tent, and the water is blue, the trees and the corn leaves are green, the ship is black, and the corn cobs are yellow with black lines.
