Sec. 2-2. City Flag.
The official flag of the City shall have a color scheme of red, white and blue inspired by the flags of both the State of Missouri and the United States. Featured at the center of a white silhouette of the State of Missouri shall be the dome of the State Capitol. The dome shall appear on a field of red, signifying courage, surrounded by twenty-four white stars on a circle of blue, which symbolizes Jefferson City's role as the Capital of Missouri, the twenty-fourth State of the Union. Passing horizontally across the center of the flag shall be alternating blue and white stripes, whose undulations represent the Missouri River. Above and below the horizontal stripes, set against the background of the white silhouette of the state, in blue lettering shall appear the names "Jefferson City" and "Missouri", respectively.
(Ord. No. 11383, § 1, 3-5-90)
