Flag, Missouri facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Flag is an extinct community in Taney County, in the U.S. state of Missouri. It was on the west side of the county, near the Stone County line, a bit north of the present day location of the Table Rock Dam.

A post office called Flag was established in 1900, and remained in operation until 1927. Flag once contained a schoolhouse, which is now defunct. Some say the community was named after the American flag, while others believe it was named for a flag station near the original town site.
