Another news photo available on the web gave a much fuller view of the flag. At www.sireporter.com/news-articles/1646/1646-Island-aquifer-gets-good-report-from-county-hydrogeologist%E2%80%A9.html?ID=2522 it could be seen fully extended in the background. As already stated, it is composed of the town seal on a white field.
