Description of the flag

The flag is blue, a narrow blue-white border, and the city logo, consisting of a white gull flying in front of a yellow sun, and a breaking light blue wave, partially overlapping the sun.

Myrtle Beach is a city in Horry County, South Carolina, United States. It is part of the Grand Strand, a stretch of beaches along the South Carolina coastline, and the combined Myrtle Beach-Conway-North Myrtle Beach MSA.

Founded early in the 20th century, Myrtle Beach is primarily a resort town. It is the primary hub of the Grand Strand, a stretch of beaches along South Carolina's coast, and sees upward of ten million visitors each annual season, with a large proportion coming from Ohio, North Carolina, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Georgia, West Virginia, England, and Canada. Visitors are drawn primarily by the coastline, but also by a number of amusement parks, restaurants, festivals, and tourist traps. As of 2006, the population of the city was 22,759." - from Wikipedia,_South_Carolina.

The flag is shown on a city website:

"The Myrtle Beach city flag was designed by the late Jane Charles, wife of former City Council member Harry Charles, in 1992."
