A white flag with the city seal in the center. It consists of an outer yellow-lined ring with the text LITERIS ANTIQVIS NOVIS INSTITVTIS DECORA and CIVICO REGIMINE DONATA A.D. 1646. The center of the seal is divided blue over white, with an illustration of a blue building and tree, with a gold garland above, and a red ribbon below. On the ribbon is written CANTABRIGIA (Cambridge in Latin) in yellow, and below on the white field in yellow CONCITA A.D. 1636. Cambridge is in Middlesex County.

The obverse of a variant of the flag I studied at City Hall in 1972 shows a single tree on a blue field, with a red ribbon stating CANTABRIGIA.
