The City Council passed Resolution 28207 on July 16, 1990, adopting an official City Flag. The Flag was designed by Council member Paul Kraabel. The flag consists the City logo -- a stylized profile of Chief Sealth surrounded by the motto "City of Goodwill" -- with thick waving lines flowing from the logo to the edges of the flag. According to the resolution, the colors are "white and teal blue/green (the color of Puget Sound at dusk)." Only three copies of the flag were made.

A few months ago, I was finally able to purchased one of these flags from a local flag shop. In nearly seven years of living near, and working in, downtown Seattle, I have never once seen a Seattle flag flying or otherwise displayed from any location -- official or unofficial -- other than my own front porch.
