City Clerk of the City of Florence, Joe Christofield sent me photo of the flag and small image of the city logo. He has no information about the city flag, but the logo (which is main element of the flag) was adopted in 2002 and officially registered in 2004. The logo is registered trademark of the City of Florence, Kentucky.
The flag has three horizontal stripes of blue, white and yellow, with ratio 1:8:1 (I would say, but not sure). In the middle of the white stripe is placed the city logo, including R-mark.
About the city:
"Florence is a city in Boone County, Kentucky, United States. The population was 23,551 at the 2000 census. The Florence area was originally known as Crossroads, because of the convergence of several roads from Burlington and Union at Ridge Road (now U.S. 25). By 1821, the area was known as Maddentown, named for Thomas Madden, a Covington attorney who owned a farm on the Burlington Pike. When Madden moved away, the area became known as Connersville in 1828, for Jacob Conner, a settler who assumed responsibility for the growing town. The town was renamed Florence as another Connersville already existed in Harrison County. It was incorporated on January 27, 1830 and grew quickly after the completion of the Covington-Lexington Turnpike in 1836."

The city logo includes a a slanted flag pole from which two long triangular streamers fly, longer dark blue one above smaller dark yellow one. They seem to be (depicted as being) stitched together, their hoists overlapping on the upper
half of the yellow streamer.
