The current city flag is above, according to the official site of Kaohsiung City Government (in Chinese). It's adopted on Jan. 1, 2010 by the municipality authority. The image was created by Kaohsiung City Government.

According to edward-lee.com, vexilla-mundi.com and Wikipedia, a white flag with large emblem centered on it. This emblem, quite different from the colorful logo at Wikiedia: Kaohsiung City seal, shows a bronze stylized "高" (gāo) from the city name on a very dark blue cogwheel outline surrounded by very dark red lettering in Chinese and English: "中華民國高雄市" (but, like some others we've seen, sure seems to be written backwards: "中華民國高雄市") and "Kaohsiung City - R.O.C." in Latin capitals, below.

At Globalflag, this same design but with yellow "高", blue cogwheel and medium red lettering. Which is the correct/current design? Or are these just saturation differences for the same design? Ratio: 2:3.

The two images of its previous flag are both from GlobalFlag, and the second was created in darker wrong colors.
