Description of the flag

The NAVA image at www.nava.org/Flag%20Design/City%20Survey%202004/city_flag_photos/Wilmington.jpg and shown in the American Flag Survey (2004) and American City Flags (Purcell, 2003) is a light blue flag with a golden yellow cross throughout offset to the hoist with the city seal centered on the core of the cross, its diameter half of the flag height.

While the main elements are the same (ship, barn, plough, canal?), there seems to be two different versions of the seal in official use: See both www.ci.wilmington.de.us/images/link_wilmawards.jpg (with ring rim) and www.ci.wilmington.de.us/images/banner_mayor2.jpg. The flag as shown by NAVA lacks the inner rim border, the lettering freely set against the landscape background.

The background of this flag is patterned after the a href="se.html">Swedish national flag standing for the local historical importance of Swedish colonization.
