Description of the Flag

The flag of the City of Willoughby (in Northern Sydney), has the seal in the centre of a white field and two horizontal fairly dark green lines behind it. The seal is described here, although in the flag, the outer circle containing the words is instead a solid dark green circle.
Observed: Outside council buildings on Victoria Avenue, Chatswood

The council site mentions that the flag was first flown 12 May 1990 and explains that the flowers in the emblem are:

  • WARATAH - Telopea speciosissima
  • CHRISTMAS BELL - Blandfordia grandiflora
  • SYDNEY RED GUM/APPLE GUM - Angophora costata
  • FLANNEL FLOWER - Actinotus helianthi
  • NATIVE ROSE - Boronia serrulata
(The 'native rose' is commonly called boronia.) Two of the significant pioneering industries of the area are represeted in the leather belt (tanning industry) and the mural crown (brickmaking), which is also explained as representing Willoughby's status as a city, which was granted in 1989.

I am not certain that the belt buckle is meant to be on the flag.
