Description of the Flag

"Nampa is the largest city in Canyon County, Idaho, United States, and the second largest in the state. Only the capital city, Boise, is larger. As of the 2000 Census the population of Nampa was 51,867 (2006 estimate: 79,587).

Nampa is located about 20 miles west of Boise along Interstate 84. The city is considered part of the Boise metropolitan area.

Nobody knows for sure where Nampa got its name. The belief is that it came from a Native American word for moccasin. Native Americans stuffed their moccasins with sagebrush to keep warm, making a larger footprint." - from Wikipedia
