The Adelaide City Council approved the design of the Armorial Flag on August 2, 1982.
It replaced the "unofficial decoration" the Coat of Arms on white background which had flown outside the Town Hall Adelaide on special occasions during the previous half century.
The new design was prepared by the garter king of Arms of the College of Arms, London.
The symbols used for the flag have been taken from the shield of the Arms of the City of Adelaide.
It is a flag with a blue background with a gold and a red cross dividing it into the four quarters of the Arms.
The flag is bordered on three side in the blue and gold colors of the Corporation, taken from the wreath below the crest of the Arms.
