Description of the flag

From the city's official website, the flag features the "city's iconic thunderbird".

What is shown on the flag is indeed the city's logo, lettering excluded:
"Since the 1950's, the city has incorporated the thunderbird into its various logos in some fashion. In 2012, the City Council adopted a revised version of the traditional logo that provides a clear and easily reproducible form, replacing a variety of alternatives in use."

As far as the corporate seal is concerned:
"The city also has adopted a new corporate seal that uses the new version of the thunderbird. The seal displays the thunderbird inscribed by a stylized circle and the words "City of Gallup, New Mexico" and "Founded 1881." The seal is to be used as determined by New Mexico or city statute, and will most commonly appear on official documents requiring the impression of a corporate seal."
