Osage is a city in Mitchell County, Iowa, United States. The population was 3,451 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Mitchell County.
The "common" flag is almost identical in design to the sesquicentennial flag, most certainly by the same author and probably adopted in the same time.

Congratulations go out to Carole Luse of Osage for creating the winning design for the official Osage Sesquicentennial Flag. Her entry, pictured here, won first place, while Jaceil Giselson's placed second and Tiare Chanel took third.
The Sesquicentennial Committee sponsored the flag design contest starting in the fall of 2004. All entries were submitted to the Osage Chamber, and the top three entries were posted in the conference room of Osage City Hall. The winners were selected by the Sesquicentennial Committee with Dea Shoars as the individual chair of the flag contest."
