Prescott's flag has the city seal with text around it and olive leaves.
Daniel's photo suggests the text includes "HOMETOWN" and maybe "HISTORIC."

The website at www.cityofprescott.net shows the municipal seal very much resembles an English police badge. On a gray diamond (i.e., a square set on one of its points) a similar gray square is superimposed. Each square is in the form of a grid rather than being solid. In the center of the uppermost square is a circular seal whose circumference touches each facet of the square. The seal itself is composed of two concentric circles, both fimbriated in black. The outer circle is white, and at the top are the words 'CITY OF PRESCOTT' in black capitals, with the word 'ARIZONA' written in a similar fashion at the bottom. The center of the seal is multicolored; underneath a pale blue sky and occupying the center foreground is a butte in shades of brown. To its right is a pine tree in green and brown, while a river in deep blue flows from the butte toward the foreground, flanked on both sides by green fields.

The butte pictured on the city seal is named ”Thumb Butte” and the
watercourse represents “Granite Creek" which runs through downtown Prescott. The
pine tree represents the surrounding forests.
