A red-gold-green vertical bicolor, with the city seal centered.
The website at www.sangabrielcity.com shows the seal. Within a circular format the outer ring has both external and internal bordering in gold. The upper half of the outer ring contains the words 'CITY OF SAN GABRIEL' in gold block letters, while the lower half contains the words 'INCORPORATED APRIL 124, 1912' in smaller and thinner gold block lettering. The central image consists of a full frontal view of Mission San Gabriel in gold and white, with a blue sky dotted with white cumulus clouds above and a desert scene in burnt sienna, red ochre, and gold. Immediately in front of the mission is a black mass with the word and date 'FOUNDED 1675' in miniscule gold block lettering.

The flag is shown (in b/w version) in PDF document at www.leavcom.com/pdf/SGwinter2003.pdf, which states the colors are red, green and gold - but I think the order should be red, gold and green.
