This flag was posted on the Facebook page of the Argyle Flag Museum:
Flag flown, May 2022: https://www.facebook.com/argylemuseum/photos/5624817857545911
The flag is gyronny yellow and black with a central black disk bearing a
wheat wreath inside which is the letter A.
According to the post, the hamlet of Argyle was named upon the suggestion in the 1870s of Dugald McLeod based on his family home of Argyllshire, Scotland. The flag was designed by Shayne Campbell in 2018 and first flown in 2022. The flag is based on the Clan Campbell flag flown at Inverary Castle, the home of the Duke of Argyll. The ring of wheat represents the region's agricultural economic activities, and the letter A stands for Argyle.
