From: Staten Island Chamber of Commerce

The flag is on a white background in the center of which is the design of a seal in the shape of an oval. Within the seal appears the color blue to symbolize the skyline of the borough in which two seagulls appear colored in white.

The green outline represents the countryside of our borough with white outline denoting the residential areas of Staten Island. Below is inscribed the words Staten Island in gold. Under our borough name are five wavy lines of blue to symbolize the water surrounding us on all sides. Gold fringe outlines the flag.

The flag of Staten Island, was adopted in 1848 and is blue with the seal (containing an 'S' for the Dutch Staten) in orange.

Staten Island's flag was more likely adopted in 1898 when the Borough of Staten Island was established. The flag described as an "S" on a white field may be obsolete.
