Ozark, incorporated in 1890, is a city in Christian County, Missouri, United States. The population was 9,665 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Christian County. Ozark is part of the Springfield, Missouri Metropolitan
Statistical Area." - from Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozark,_Missouri.
Ozark beat Branson by more than a decade. “I just thought we needed some identity,” is former Mayor Neal Grubaugh’s explanation for why he started an eight-month campaign for an Ozark flag in the mid-‘80s. “Springfield had one. Of course, I’ve been kinda hip on flags anyway.” The flag, designed by then-resident Jack Weins in a citizen competition, symbolizes the Finley River running through Ozark, and the bridge is a historic one near the town’s old mill." - from an Article by Gregory Holman from here: www.417mag.com/417-Magazine/November-2007/Fly-It-Flags-of-the-Ozarks.
