This is the flag of the US state that Springfield, the setting of the animated show "The Simpsons" is in. One of the show's running gags is that you never know precisely what state Springfield is in - often characters will be about to say the name when, say, a passing train obscures their words.
In one episode, evil nuclear power plant owner Monty Burns runs for governor, and in one of his campaign commercials we see the state flag. This is it. Except for the motto in the bottom stripe, I'd actually prefer this design to many seal-on-a-monocolored-background designs.

The Simpsons is my favorite show, and several times in the past ten years, they've shown the flag of the mythical state Springfield is located in.
Recently, in the 10th season finale they assigned a name to the state: "Northern Kentucky" abbreviated NK, (Sort of like West Virginia or South Carolina).
