Description of the flag

I ran across this flag at the Delaware terminus of the Cape May - Lewes Ferry. A light blue flag with the seal centered.
Eric Martin, 6 November 2023

It’s a ~3:5 pale blue flag with the entity’s seal centered on it, its diameter approx. 4/5ths of the flag’s height. The seal is circular with dark blue background, containing the full seals of the states of Delaware (dexter) and New Jersey (sinister), side by side, inside two tangent white discs, and, outlined in white, an image of the Delaware Memorial Bridge, above, and a vessel of the Cape May - Lewes Ferry line, below; this blue disc has a thin white orle all around. The rim of the seal is buff, edged black on the outside, and bears writing set in black bold blunt-serif letters: "Delaware River & Bay Authority" all block letters on the upper half, "by compact between the states of Delaware & New Jersey" thus capitalized on the lower half, and the date 1962 split as "19" and "62" on both sides of the middle of the rim.

The basic motif of this seal, the two state seals, is the same as that of the flag of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

I found an image of the seal online in acceptable quality, at The official website shows no flag nor seal; only a logo lettering: white "DRBA", with the "D" shaped as an coiled arrow..

At is an article about this entity showing what seems to be a previous or alternative logo, crediting the official website.
