Municipal flags in Erie County:
A diagonally divided blue over green flag with a sailing ship surrounded by 13 yellow stars in the upper hoist. The boundary of blue and green is interrupted by a small green peninsula extending into the blue field in the middle. The green is in two tones - brighter green marks the shape of the county.

The "small green peninsula" is a stylized version of the Presque Isle peninsula, which shelters Erie harbor. Here is a satellite photo (greatly reduced) but the natural colors look eerily (pun intended) like the flag itself.

The flag of Erie County, Pennsylvania, is a canting flag, as the flag design is actually a geometric representation of Erie County's geographic position in the northwestern corner of Pennsylvania/ A comparison of the flag's geometric design with a map of Pennsylvania will bring this point out very clearly.
