Municipal flags in Clayton County:
image by António Martins-Tuválkin, 8 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.
Once available as a black and white flag photograph at web.archive.org/web/*/www.iowacounties.org/County+Info/Flags/Clayton.htm (and kept by John Johnson) the flag of Clayton County is a very light (possibly white) ~3:5 cloth framing a large emblem in a single dark color (possibly black). The emblem shows three stylized stick figures facing front lined side by side holding each other's shoulders, legs akimbo, the middle figure wearing a dress the two others trousers with ankles showing; on either side a stylized pig facing front, on the same baseline, and behind each of both a ripe corn stalk, taller than the human figures. Along the top, between the upper tips of the stalks, capitals reading "Clayton" above "County, IA", centered and set in ITC Grizzly typeface. The emblem, except for the lettering, is vertically symmetrical.

The flag is black on yellow, as shown in two photos on p. 3 (1st and 2nd of the 3rd row) of the Iowa sesquicentennial county flag album [u9s03b].
