The flag is the Coat of Arms with and inscription above reading MUNICIPIO DE PANAMÁ in black capital letters, and below it seems to have the motto LA MUY NOBLE Y LEAL CIUDAD (the very noble and loyal city) also in black capital letters (according to the official explanation of the CoA, found here.
There seems to be also a gonfalon, as seen here. (Source: http://www.laestrella.com.pa/online/noticias/2012/03/26/alcaldia-de-panama-decidira-sobre-problemas-en-calle-uruguay.asp).

Here is a historical Coat of Arms, the first one Panama City had had. The City was refounded again on August 19, 1519 by Pedro Arias de Dávila (known as Pedrarias Dávila) and by Real Cédula issued on December 7, 1519 (other sources claim September 15, 1521), the Spanish King Carlos V granted this city its arms, with the motto "In nómine meo foveat me" (Help me on my own behalf, or help me for my own sake).
