Description of the Flag

The NAVA image at www.nava.org/Flag%20Design/City%20Survey%202004/city_flag_photos/JerseyCity.jpg and shown in the American Flag Survey (2004) and American City Flags (Purcell, 2003) is a ~2:3 vertical tricolor of dark blue, white and golden yellow (or light orange?), in the same Dutch-heritage pattern common to other civic flag in the former Nieuwe Amsterdam area. On the center of the white panel, a golden yellow disc with thin brown rim and in it a tulip shaped shield divided per fess white over brown with some stuff on it; above the shield lettering, some apparently on a golden yellow scroll above the shield, some directly on the disc arched along its upper edge. The details in the NAVA image on line are too small and blurry to know.

This design is somehow confirmedly correct as the flag of Jersey City, for at www.cityofjerseycity.com/uploadedImages/JerseyCity.jpg, the official website, the very same image is shown.

However, large size images of the seal at the official website (in color www.cityofjerseycity.com/images/splash_img01.gif and in b/w www.cityofjerseycity.com/uploadedImages/jccityseal.jpg) do not match the apparent details of the city flag image.

I was fortunate to win the eBay auction for the -as they called it- "marching band flag". Attached is a variant of the Jersey City seal - not just the simpler color scheme, but also the items depicted.
