Description of the flag

It is a dark yellow flag with a seal-like emblem centered on it; this is shown in white with blue lining and consists of a double-rimmed ring with the inscription "Town of Hempstead, N.Y." from "7 to 5 o'clock" in large serif capitals and "founded 1644" in small sans-serif capitals on the remaining space; on the central area of the shield, the national coat of arms of the United States (isn't this a misuse?) with a squarish scroll reading "Nassau County" as its crest.

A news story at confirms that the Town of Hempstead flag is yellow:

"Lofaro added, 'You know as I walked into the hall tonight I noticed all the flags in the front here and how they related to all that Trustee Barbieri and has done for us. The green flag is from Town of North Hempstead and Donald got $250,000 from them; the orange flag is the County of Nassau and he got $100,000 and secured nearly a million dollars in block grants from them; the United States flag at the end represents the federal government and Donald received $2 million from them. The yellow flag is the flag of the Town of Hempstead and Donald, you have four more years to work on them."
The Village of Hempstead is within the Town of Hempstead (see below).
