This flag can be seen on a photo from the 2018 meeting of the League of
Arizona Cities and Towns:
It is blue with an Arizona-shaped logo, lower half black, upper half radiating red and yellow, overlain by an orange disk, edged red, with yellow balloon declaring the name, and a scene of the sun and saguaro cactuses, and the motto THE PUEBLO WITH A CITY curved on the string to the balloon.

The website at www.southtucson.org shows a very strange emblem, part logo and part seal. At the top is a yellow lasso fimbriated black and what appears to be a knot or loop at the lower left. Within the lasso are the words 'SOUTH TUCSON' in two rows of black capitals, the upper row being written in smaller letters than the lower. The lower part of the emblem is an incomplete semicircle, with the left end attached to the lasso and the right hanging off into space. In the center foreground is a saguaro cactus in green rising from a brown desert floor and intersecting a mountain range in dark blue. To the right of the cactus are two clouds in white and gray, while to the left is an orange sun depicted in Native American fashion. Along the bottom arc of the semicircle are the words of the city motto, written in small black capitals: 'A PUEBLO WITHIN A CITY.'
