On the official site of the City of Lonsdale in Minnesota, US, is shown the city seal as central element on the white flag. As is stated on the page "The circle represents a look back at Lonsdale's past with special recognition to
1903 for our Year of Incorporation. The train coming out of the circle represents Lonsdale venturing into the future. The yellow color of the circle represents the relative prosperity, which Lonsdale has experienced in the past and hopes to experience in the future. The train represents the fact the early city was founded and built by the railroad, making it very important to the early success and prosperity. The railroad track does not continue under the train in the design, representing the fact the railroad no longer exists. The spirit of the railroad, however, is still alive as the locomotive continues to steam forward into the future. The locomotive now represents the embodiment of Lonsdale. The Czech flag represents our heritage. Lonsdale was founded by and has a storied history to its forefathers, immigrants of present day
Czech Republic. The white field surrounding the design represents the future. White is the presence of all color. With the presence of all color the citizens of Lonsdale are free to create their own picture of the future.
Designed by David Vikla & Joe Kastner in 2003"
