As is typical with town flags, Branson's was a community project. In 1999, the town's city manager, John Pinch, decided it was time the town have a logo. Jerry Adams, the city's spokesman, helped organize a committee that chose among citizen-submitted designs, tweaking and combining them to create the final. The goal: represent Branson's land, lakes and musical surroundings. The star symbolizes the stars of Branson's shows.
