The town of St. George does (or certainly used to) fly the St. George's Cross flag. Whether it is the official flag of the town, I don't know, but it is certainly regularly flown above the main buildings of the town (St Peter's Church and Fort St. Catherine). Sadly it is many years since I've been there, so I can't confirm whether this is still the case.

The original poster, Imnimo, said "I saw this flag flying outside a gift shop in St. George's, Bermuda. It's a bit hard to see because it's wrapped around the pole, but it looks like it's the same as the coat of arms painted on the side of the building. After a bunch of Googling, I haven't been able to find it anywhere - is this just a random family crest in flag form, or is there more too this flag? As far as I can tell, it isn't the flag of any Bermuda municipality."
