In the "Branson Daily News", 6 March 2006, Brandon Cone reports that the city of Rockaway Beach is looking to artists from all across the United States for a flag to best represent the city. [...]
[Community Development Association President] Szabo said the design doesn't have to come from someone in Rockaway Beach. “We don't care if the artist is from California,” Szabo said. “We just want to have a good-looking flag.”[...]
The designs should have no religious or political references. The entries will be displayed in the Rockaway Beach Community Library [...]
A panel of local Taney County judges will narrow the field of entries down to three. Residents of Rockaway Beach will select the flag they feel best represents Rockaway Beach. “That way, if members of the community select the flag, it will truly feel like a community flag,” Szabo said. [...]
The deadline for submissions is 1 May. The winner of the contest will be presented with the first flag at the annual 4th of July Celebration at the city park.

The story about the city flag contest for the City of Rockaway Beach, Missouri, was already posted. I found an image of the flag on the website of the Rockaway Beach Chamber of Commerce, which is now defunct: www.rockawaybeachchamber.com/.
