The flag of the City of Enterprise, Alabama, consists of light-blue background with modified city seal on it. The seal shows famous Boll Weevil Monument, on red background (on the normal seal it is blue), and surrounded by the words "ENTERPRISE, ALABAMA" and "CITY OF PROGRESS". Photo of the flag was sent to me by Vicky Tonn, Special Projects Coordinator, City of Enterprise.
About the city:
"Enterprise is a city in the southeastern part of Coffee and Dale Counties in the southeastern part of Alabama in the Southern United States. The population was estimated to be 23,653 in the year 2006.
Enterprise is famous for the Boll Weevil Monument, a large monument of a woman holding a Boll Weevil, which is located in the town square. The city erected the statue because the destruction of the cotton crop had led to agricultural diversity, starting with peanuts and more prosperity than had ever come from cotton alone. It is said to be the only statue to an insect pest in the world. Enterprise is also right outside of Fort Rucker, an Army base which is the home of Army Aviation. Also, Enterprise is home to the Enterprise branch of the Enterprise-Ozark Community College." - from Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterprise,_Alabama.
