Design

The field of Casper’s flag is white, with a blue border one-quarter unit wide on a field of 3 by 5 units. In the center is the inner portion of the city’s seal, which has a circular red field of 1.5 units in diameter. In its center is a large white silhouette of a cowboy astride a bucking horse that faces the hoist. Running from the bronco’s left foreleg is CASPER in blue, running along the lower portion of the red disk with the final letter extending on to the white field. On the seal at 9 o’clock is the head of a sheep; at 11 o’clock, a steer’s head; at 1 o’clock, three oil-treating tanks; and at 3 o’clock, an oil derrick; all in blue. Curved above the seal is CITY OF, and curved below is WYOMING, all in small red letters.

Symbolism

The bronco rider and horse represent Wyoming, the oil derrick and treating tanks symbolize the energy industry, and the sheep and steer are for the ranching industry of the region.

More about the Flag

The city’s seal has additional elements not used on the flag’s seal: a rising sun and city outline, to symbolize the bright future of the growing city of Casper; plowed fields, suggesting the agriculture of the area; and a mountain, representing Casper Mountain. A rope design, also omitted on the flag, encircles the outer edge of the seal. The border on Wyoming’s state flag, although a different color, perhaps inspired the border on Casper’s flag.
