Description of the Flag

From City website:

The flag was adopted by the Orlando City Council on June 2, 1980, the result of a design competition sponsored by the Orlando Kiwanis Club and the Council of Arts and Sciences. Prior to 1980, the city had no official flag. Despite its relatively brief history, the City of Orlando flag is well-traveled. The flag was flown into space aboard the shuttle Columbia in 1983 and again aboard the Discovery in 1985, logging a total of 278 earth orbits and more than 7 million miles. The City flag also accompanied retired U.S. Air Force Colonel Joe Kittinger on his historic solo transatlantic balloon flight in 1984.
