"Chagrin Falls is a village in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, United States. It is a suburb of Cleveland in the Northeast Ohio Region, the 14th largest Combined Statistical Area nationwide. The village was established and has grown around a natural waterfall on the Chagrin River. As of the 2000 Census, the village population was 4,024. The village was incorporated in 1844 from parts of three townships in two counties. Neighboring Chagrin Falls Township was established in 1845."

Here is an article about the village flag in GWAV site: gwav.tripod.com/issue_22.htm
"The flag of Chagrin Falls not only departs from tradition in design, but also in its shape. The flag is displayed vertically rather than horizontally, suspended from what would be the hoist in the traditional format. Its design is also radically different, and difficult to describe. The field of the flag is white. A colorful scene of the village center shows a building (blue with lavender windows with green foliage below it), and a red and yellow bridge and walkway that cross the Chagrin River and the eponymous falls (blue waves on white). At the top, near the hoist position, and centered, is CHAGRIN FALLS OHIO in blue. The design is remarkable because it uses all 3 primary and secondary colors, and 2 shades of green and orange, as well as 3 different shades of blue. The whole appears to be a poster on cloth; as a poster it would be quite attractive, but as a flag it is unusual, to say the least. The flag was designed by Pam Premulli, a graphics designer in the village, and adopted by the village council November 28, 2005."
