An image of the current flag is available at hometown.aol.com/txflags/denton.html. The site says the wreath around the red star is oak and pecan. It also says that the version of the flag which is currently at FOTW was used during the sesquicentennial (Most likely they mean of the creation of the county, but possibly of Texas joining the US).

In 1985 Mrs. Joydelle Garrett Wolfram designed a flag for Falls County to celebrate the Texas sesquicentennial in 1986. The flag was recognized by the state senate on June 8, 1985 and by the state House of Representatives on February 28, 1985. The flag is 3 feet by 5 feet. It is described as a large white star on a royal blue field, surrounded by two white arcs and 254 gold, red, blue, and green stars.
Each county can adopt this flag by changing the name of the county and the year of it's organization which appear in the fly of the flag. Besides Falls County, Denton County adopted this flag. I have a 25k jpg of the Denton County flag on my website.
