The Miami Lakes town flag is the town seal on a white background.
Miami Lakes History
Incorporated in December 2000, the Town of Miami Lakes is a thriving city of its own, with over 22,000 residents and additional 12,000 people who work in the 1,700+ businesses located throughout the community. Forty years ago, the Graham Companies began development of Miami Lakes as a master planned community. The original 3,000 acres of Miami Lakes was once a dairy farm, whose cattle grazed where homes and businesses now prosper. Curving streets, cul-de-sacs, lakes, lots of neighborhood parks, schools, churches and shopping areas provide the facilities that have allowed the Town of Miami Lakes to become the prosperous city that is. Thousands of families and several generations fondly think of Miami Lakes as their own piece of paradise - their home.

The town seal is not circular, but oval, and the background colour of the flag is most probably not white. The seal can be seen in Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miami_Lakes,_Florida, click for larger image. The flag, unfortunately in a black and white version, can be seen in official PDF Document - Resolution 235 on this address: www.miamilakes-fl.gov/c-public_info/resolutions.php.

The seal is indeed to be oval, as shown on the website of the Miami-Dade County. The seal shows a landscape with a river, a sailing boat, houses, trees, cows and a bird. The seal has a blue rim charged with the white writing "TOWN OF
MIAMI LAKES / FLORIDA" and two white diamonds in the middle. A yellowish scroll on the base of the landscape bears the black writing "INCORPORATED / 5 DECEMBER 2000".
