The village seal:
(This is a big image!)

This 2005 article from Riverside-Brookfield Landmark describes the seal and flag:

The seal was designed in 1962 by Brookfield Village Manager Fred McGuire: "Inside a 10-sided area, representing the village borders, he set up three dolphins (for Brookfield Zoo) jumping and swimming against as background of water, with an F-86L Sabre Jet (for the Korean War memorial in Ehlert Park) flying overhead." To honor John Glenn, the astronaut who had recently been the first American to orbit the earth, the village symbol was surrounded by a rocket, a satellite, and stars. The seal was placed on the village's first flag in 1968.

A photo of the flag sent to me by Deputy Clerk Logan Gattari allowed me to produce a detailed drawing of the flag.
