Municipal flags in Somerset County:
The Somerset County flag shown here is modified from www.co.somerset.nj.us/countyseal_and_flag.html. It consists of a yellow field, with a seal showing a white map of the county and 21 white stars on a blue disk, and two yellow ribbons bearing the county name and the date 1688.

Somerset County (297,490 inhabitants in 2000; 79,000 ha; seat, Somerville), part of the New York Metropolitan Area, was carved out of Middlesex County on 14 May 1688.
The link to the county website explains the flag as follows:
"Center - Map/outline of Somerset County
Stars - 21 representing 21 municipalities

The 21 municipalities are Bedminster Township, Bernards Township, Bernardsville, Bound Brook, Branchburg Township, Bridgewater Township, Far Hills, Franklin Township, Green Brook Township, Hillsborough Township, Manville, Millstone, Montgomery Township, North Plainfield, Peapack and Gladstone, Raritan, Rocky Hill, Somerville, South Bound Brook, Warren Township and Watchung.
