It is an unequal horizontal triband of light blue, white and purple, with a large shield off set to the hoist and the city name in golden yellow on the rest of the white stripe. The shield is divided horizontally by a wavy line (per fess wavy), purple over light blue, with golden yellow inscriptions and symbols: "1688" above a fleur-de-lis on the purple area and a star above "1899" on the light blue area. The shield seems to have a rounded point.

For this image I used typeface Palatino Linitype bold for the dates and Arial Narrow bold (narrowed to 80%) for the city name; the fleur-de-lys is from [] and the star is geometric.

The exact specs of the stripes seem to be 3+2+5, with a flag ratio of 3:5, while the shield seem to be centered on an imaginary square offset to the hoist, as wide as half the flag’s height and as tall as the white and purple stripes combined. Therefore: 3:5 = (9+6+15):50 = (9+9+12+21+9):(15+30+15+40).
