Description of the flag

I have spoken with the Avon Historical Society, and they do not have a flag. They wrote:
"Thank you for your question about whether the Town of Avon has a municipal flag. To my knowledge, it does not. We have a logo which I attached here, in case you have never seen it. It appears on public documents and some signage. I will be at the library this evening and will check out files in the History Room to let you know if there is a record of a flag. If we do, I will be back in touch. But I am fairly certain there is none because all the Town flag poles have a US Flag, POW/MIA Flag, but nothing local."

A couple months ago, I asked the Avon Historical Society if they happened to have a flag, and town historian Terri Wilson told me that as far as she knew, Avon did not have a flag. A few days ago, I accidentally stumbled upon an image with an interesting detail in the background, it was a white flag with the Avon town seal on it. I sent it over to Terri Wilson and she responded with the following:

The Town Manager’s office says this is the only flag they know of with the town seal on it. They don’t believe it’s considered “official” but something that has been in the Council Chambers for many years. They do not know of any others.

In summary, the flag is the Town Seal of Avon on a white sheet, except on the flag the seal has a golden outline instead of a black one.

"There is hereby adopted, as the official seal of the Town of Avon, a design depicting the Towpath Canal, a manned canal boat being towed by two horses, the founding date of the Town, the incorporation date of the Town, with the name of the Town and the State and the word "seal" inscribed thereon."
