Why is a Northfield Public Building Flying the Flag of Malaysia?

Conservatviebrand blog has an interesting question. Why is a public park building in Northfield, Illinois flying the flag of a foreign country outside its edifice?

The national flag of Malaysia replaced the American flag outside a Northfield, IL public park district building Saturday, an action that appears to violate the traditions of the U.S. Federal Flag Code. A group gathered at Clarkson Park on Willow Road, presumably to celebrate Malaysian Independence Day, erected the flag, which depicts the traditional Muslim crescent and stars. By late Saturday evening, the American flag had been put back up on the flag pole.

What the heck is going on in Northfield? Have they seceded and joined Malaysia?
