A red flag with a white-blue stripe along the fly edge, and the seal centered, featuring a dogwood blossom.
Interesting that the overall design points to a Tennessee connection (plain red flag with round emblem centered and a thin double stripe at the fly, white and blue), however this town is located close to the state line to South Carolina, with the Tennessee state line on the other side of the North Carolina "panhandle", 120 km northwest.
The emblem as shown on the flag, seems to be a simplified form of the town seal, which shows disparate imagery on each of the "petals", wisely left empty on the flag.

The flag of the town of Columbus, North Carolina was obtained from
October 25, 2016
The Town of Columbus could soon have its own flag.
Columbus Town Council met on Oct. 20 and heard from John Vining, with the Discover Columbus committee, which designed the new flag. Vining said the design is very similar to the town’s seal with the predominant feature, like the seal, being the dogwood. The white dogwood flower is pictured against a deep blue background, surrounded by a gold ring, on a red field.
Council members said they were pleased with the design of the new flag. They suggested the only addition would be to add the year Columbus was founded, which was 1855. The “18” will be added in the yellow circle at the 9 o’clock position and the “55” will be added at the 3 o’clock position of the yellow circle.
