Municipal flags in Warren County:
image by António Martins-Tuválkin, 25 September 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 Warren County are still at web.archive.org/web/*/www.iowacounties.org/County+Info/History+Pages/warren.htm and web.archive.org/web/*/www.iowacounties.org/County+Info/Flags/Warren.htm. It is a ~3:5 plain light (white?) flag showing five elements and lettering. The lettering reads "Warren County" in black (?) serif capitals along the top. The five elements, placed in saltire (2+1+2), are: a twig of maple with two leaves, on the center; a wooden gazebo with a flag on its peak, at upper hoist; an apple, at lower hoist; a balloon, at upper fly; and a log cabin, at bottom fly.

According to the booklet [u9s03b] (page 13, all images of the 2nd row and 1st and 2nd of the 3rd row), the whole flag is indeed back and white. The wooden gazebo with a flag on its peak covers a relatively Lilliputian hand-operated reciprocating positive-displacement water pump.
