Boy Scouts, organizing their mammoth Jamboree which will take place June 8-10
at the Tooele County Deseret Peak Recreation Complex, are inviting towns in the
Great Salt Lake Council to provide a flag to fly for the duration of the event.
But Stockton has no flag. Mayor Thomas suggested using a silk screening pattern
first drawn for Stockton Days T-shirts. The pattern employs the town logo -
"First Mining Town in Utah, Founded 1863" and a drawing of a forested mountain
and old mine entrance. Perhaps, someone suggested, town flags could be sold to
residents to fly or hang at home. Or, someone else offered, selling the flags
could be a fund raiser for the fire department to buy protective suits. "It
would be kind of fun to have a town flag," said Mayor Thomas, smiling.

The page at http://www.transcriptbulletin.com/archives/7.1.02/flag.phtml reports input being sought for a new flag design:
After months of collaborative research and graphic work Tooele City has narrowed the search for a new city flag down to three options. Now the city hopes to enlist the help of its residents’ discerning eyes as a final design is selected. Inspired by an article in a Salt Lake newspaper last winter that outlined what separates an easily recognizable and identifiable flag from merely “a seal on a white bed sheet,” Mayor Charlie Roberts decided it was time to give Tooele a flag that lived up to the city’s motto: “Utah’s brightest star.” He wanted a flag citizens could be proud of and one that was symbolic of the impressive character of a city that was going places. “We really don’t have a flag,” said Roberts. “It’s really the Tooele City logo on a white background.” Roberts assigned the project to a city employee committee to ensure the chosen design was representative of the community at large and included ideas and concepts that would resonate with each Tooele resident. The mayor also elicited the considerable graphic design and marketing skills of Ben Nielson and Dave Bern of Transcript Bulletin Publishing, the same design team that had created the new city logo two years previously.
...coming up with three diverse options did not prove difficult for the committee. Each of the three designs varies greatly from the next and incorporates color schemes unique to the other two alternatives. The three proposed designs for Tooele City’s new flag were chosen by the committee out of 30 different concepts. The star in each flag represents a progressive, unique and growing community that offers an exceptional quality of life for its citizens. The design that features a star with a beam of light over foothills and mountains, celebrates Tooele City’s scenic location and its qualities of being a safe and nurturing place in which to live. The next design illustrates a shining star in a midnight sky centered between the Oquirrh and Stansbury Mountains. The third design features an oversized star in the sky. The blue represents freedom and open vistas that residents enjoy.

Woods Cross OK's new city flag design
WOODS CROSS -- Woods Cross resident Shon Feller submitted the winning design for the new city flag, which will first be displayed at the city's annual Memorial Day celebration. The flag will have a Woods Cross logo atop railroad tracks, with small, white flags emblazoned with "Community of Promise." The city will purchase three flags at the cost of just over $1,000. One flag will be displayed on the pole just outside city hall, another in the courtroom and the third stored for future use. Colonial Flag will produce the 4-foot by 6-foot flag. Feller's original design had the American flag and Utah State flag as the two smaller flags, but community council members felt that since the city flag would fly with the American and state flag, using the city's new motto, "Community of Promise," would tell the city's story better.
