The city's flag is horizontally divided orange over blue by a widening white curve. In the lower blue field is the city name and motto; in the upper hoist is the city seal
Ron Lahav, 7 January 2005
I can only add that the said motto is "The International City", composed in italic sans-serif capitals, while the wording "City of Long Beach" is set in regular sans-serif capitals, larger than those used in the motto; both
inscriptions in white letters. The seal shows on a golden yellow background a scallop shell contour onto which a local landscape scene is depicted.
The seal as depicted on the flag lacks the outer lettered rim, unlike at www.ci.long-beach.ca.us/, www.ci.long-beach.ca.us/img/branding/brand_default.gif, or secure2.longbeach.gov/secureimages/cityseal/150-x-150-pix-city-seal-rev.jpg (all these are authoritative depictions in official sites.) Additionally, the seal on the flag is separated by thin white edging.

The Green Flag of the Port of Long Beach for Environmental Achievement in 2005 is found at www.polb.com/news/displaynews.asp?NewsID=43 or
www.oocl.com/cn/press/2006/30March2006(2).htm. The program provides financial incentives and recognition to the Port's vessel operators who participate consistently in a voluntary speed-reduction program designed to reduce air pollution.
