This flag for the town of Marstrand in Sweden can be seen on Google street
https://www.google.com/maps. The flag design is the same as the town's coat
The flag consists of three white herring circling a white six-pointed star on a blue background. Historically, herring fishing was a major source of wealth for the town and its port.
The following Wikipedia page gives a brief statement of the flag's history, saying, "The anachronistic coat of arms is based on the town's medieval sigil, in use during the free port era."
Attached is a square version of the above coat of arms, to match the apparent dimension of the flag seen via street view, as well as a cropped version of the street view photo.
