Description of the flag

The flag consists of a variant of the Coat of Arms, a banner above with the word "JAMESTOWN" in all caps, and letters 'R' and 'I' on the bottom of each side of the Coat of Arms respectively. The Coat of Arms consists of a white sheep along with "1678" -- the year the town was incorporated -- just below it.

According to the Jamestown Historical Society, "Sheep played a large part in the early days of the island of Conanicut. As early as 1637, when the Narragansett granted the right to the grasses of the island to the Newport settlers, sheep were grazed on the island. Sheep and wool remained important island products through the 19th century."
