The website at indicates there might be a municipal flag, as the town logo seems to be displayed on a white rectangle. The design of the emblem is semi-elliptical in form, with the bottom left of the ellipse cut away to show a stream flowing from the left-hand portion of the ellipse, past a cottonwood tree, and forming a blazon with illegible words written in white in a miniscule script at the bottom of the ellipse. The ellipse is sky blue, with a brown cottonwood tree leafed in green to the right of the ellipse; the aforementioned stream flowing to the right of the tree. Just to the right of the tree is the word 'Cottonwood' written in stylized green lettering, with Arizona written in small blue capitals beneath it.

The logo is a blue background with a green cottonwood tree, and a darker blue river. Within the river are the words 'Heart of the Verde Valley', The city of Cottonwood was named for the cottonwood trees along the Verde River, which goes through Cottonwood. Cottonwood is one of 5 communities within the region known as the Verde Valley. It was designed in 1987, as part of a contest. I don't recall the name of the company that won the design, the company is no longer in business, to my knowledge.

The depiction of the logo at the head of the Administrative Departments page on the Cottonwood Web Site shows the emblem in a white rectangular frame, but Mr. Mickelsen has not replied to my query as to whether this can be taken to imply a flag.
