The city of Town and Country, Missouri, has confirmed that it has a flag, but it has no images, photos or documentation to send us.

"The design of Hazelwood's flag was selected from several entries submitted during a city-wide contest in 1971, said Tim Davidson, the city's communications coordinator. "In this design, the two large sections at the base,
the blue and red triangles, represent two rivers coming together," he said. "Since the city of Hazelwood is located near the place where the Missouri River meets the Mississippi River, that's what these two triangles symbolize." At one time, the emblem of the city was a white birch tree because hundreds of them were planted throughout the area, Davidson said. "The white birch tree is used as part of the design, using an artsy rendition showing three green leaves and a black trunk. The black chevron below the tree signifies the growth of Hazelwood as it spreads out from its central point," he said."
