Located in metropolitan Kansas City, in Johnson County, Kansas. Countryside was established in 1937 and incorporated as a City in 1951.

Rectangular flag of ratio approx. 3:5, divided horizontally in two equal parts: the upper one violet with a white half disc set on the lower edge, the lower half divided horizontally in two halves, dark yellow over white, with a triangle, also divided horizontally, violet over black triangle. The triangle is horizontally symmetrical, its base coinciding with the bottom of the flag and its apex with its center; the half disc being the upper half of an imaginary disc whose diameter is 2/3rds of the flag's height and whose center is the center of the flag. The whole composition is symmetrical except for the white lettering "Countryside" on the black area, set in a fantasy cursive "brush"
I gather that the half disc stands for the Sun and the lower half of the flag for the landscape (with what may be a road).
