"The background of the flag is white. The three vertical lines are royal blue. The lettering inside the vertical lines is gold. The circle itself and all designs therein are royal blue. The inside and outside of the circle is fringed
My description: Three vertical lines beginning from the hoist - the first is widest and contains "MOBERLY" and is not going to the bottom, where "MO." is placed in white square. The second is thinner and contains "THE MAGIC CITY". The third is the thinnest. They are all on about one third of all the flag. On the rest of the flag is a seal-like circle divided in three equal fields - first with a flower, wheat and corn, the second with industry wheels and a church and buildings, and the third contains a train. The official meaning: "The vertical lines suggest development. The flower represents growth. The wheat and corn represent the agriculture aspect of the community. The train is from the seal of the City of Moberly. The cog-wheels, church and building represent business, industry, religion and health care in the community. The circle represents the railroad tracks which was the birth of Moberly, Missouri, while also representing that growth is never-ending. The three lines separating the symbols indicates peace. The colors, white flag, royal blue and gold represent the Magic City, Moberly, Missouri."
The flag was adopted on 15.07.1985. Information and black and white drawing of the flag thanks to Lindsey D. Brewer, GIS Coordinator, City of Moberly, Missouri.
