This is the flag of Arlington County located in northern Virginia, bordering on the District of Columbia, and contains the city of Arlington. The flag is yellow with the county seal in the center.
Here's some information that was sent to me by an official of the Arlington County government:
"The house symbolized in the circle is the Custis-Lee Mansion, located in Arlington Cemetery, which was originally the property of Robert E. Lee. It is also known as Arlington House. In the design, Arlington House is surrounded by dogwoods blossoms. As I'm sure you know, the dogwood is Virginia's state flower."Randy Young, 19 September 2000
The flag was adopted in 1983. Designed by Mr. Wilcox, Deputy General Council, depart. of the navy. Central emblem is a stylized representation of the Arlington House. Leaves are in blue to prevent using a fourth color (the colors are yellow, blue and white).
