Avalon is in Cape May County, New Jersey. There is a photo with a rather indistinct view of the Cape May County flag at The flag is red at the fly end - the rest is hard to determine because of glare and shadow, but in any case, not the white flag appearing with the Avalon flag in the pages found by Dov.

The first flag was the one carried by the Belmar Battalion, N.J. Militia Reserve and was made by Mrs. Wm. Ripley Cobb. The painting of the Coat of Arms on the Flag was the work of Phillip Brunin. This flag was first shown to the public on the evening of April 18th, 1918, when it was formally entrusted to the Battalion by his Honor Mayor George W. Van Note. The colors of the Municipal Flag are Jersey Blue and Colonial Buff. These are distinctly New Jersey colors and were first selected by George Washington, because New Jersey as well as New York were originally settled by the Dutch and Jersey Blue and Buff figured in the Netherlands Insignia.

Here may be seen a copy of the seal, on the Mayor's news release, citing his support for a flag protection ordinance, which is interesting of itself: The date is 24, July 2003. You might have to scroll down the page.

"The original colors of the Borough were gold and green. In fact, the first Borough flag had a gold colored imprint on a green field. I remember seeing it at my early attendance at Borough Council Meetings. Some thought that flag was in the Borough Hall attic, having been placed there after Mrs. Catherine Letschie designed the new multi-colored Borough logo which was placed on a flag with a field of blue. We’re still searching, but it doesn’t look like we will find the original green and gold flag . . ."
