The City of Mt Pleasant, Iowa officially adopted their city flag on August
30, 1979. It was designed by Sheri Beckham, a former resident of the city.
The flag is of a diagonally divided field of white and cyan with a yellow saltire. In the center is a yellow ring with the name of the town on the top, and the phrase "YOUR [KIND] OF TOWN" on the bottom. Inside the rings is a white disk with a green outline of Iowa on it. In each chevron is a oval of the opposite color. From clockwise are a black steam tractor, a gray flower of some kind, industrial pulley wheels of black and white, and what appears to be corn or wheat.
