A local flag with a very fine design can be seen at farm3.static.flickr.com/2095/2205584318_de20a5a409.jpg, found on this webpage: mysecondjournal.wordpress.com/category/meme/.
"When Creve Coeur was incorporated in December 1949, less than one square mile housed a population of 1,900 citizens. Today, the population of Creve Coeur is 16,759 spanning 11.36 square miles with approximately 7,600 housing units. Currently, Creve Coeur has 80 miles of public streets and 16 miles of private streets. Home to two private colleges, five private high schools, five private primary schools, two public school districts and approximately fifteen houses of worship, Creve Coeur is a place where everything a resident needs is no more than ten minutes away."

Creve Coeur derives from Crève Coeur, French for "Heartbreaker" - hence the broken heart on the flag.
