Black-Gold Festival flag

"The black and gold colors symbolize the famous Black Gold festival in the city (which is where the flag will be unveiled in a month), the white snow symbolizes nobility, I chose to base off of the mountainous flag of Pocatello, Idaho, due to Hazard being the Queen City of the Mountains."

"Hazard Middle School 7th grader, Gabe Vires, brought his proposal for a new city flag to the City Commissioners meeting last night. Gabe thought long and hard about the symbolism of the flag and made each element have great significance to our city. The Black and Gold symbolize the Black Gold Festival and the heritage of coal mining. The white symbolizes the nobility of the Queen City of the Mountains. The mountains are getting larger to symbolize our growth."
Masao Okazaki, 20 August 2021

According to this article, this gold and black flag will not replace the present flag but will only be the official flag of the Black Gold Festival.
