Description of the Flag

The Tallahassee city flag is a white saltire on a dark blue field with the city seal in blue on a gold background overlying the center. The seal features the dome of the capitol against a sky bearing gold clouds.

An image on the Leon County website clearly shows a different flag used in Tallahassee - use is uncertain.

The NAVA image at and shown in the American Flag Survey (2004) and American City Flags (Purcell, 2003) is the blue saltire flag. The seal as shown on the flag (with state Capitol dome) is not the one used by the city government (, which shows a large tree instead (image archived here).

Alternative flag

[Tallahassee, Florida] partial image by António Martins-Tuválkin, 3 June 2008

The link at shows a photo of yet another Tallahassee city flag (along with the relevant national, state and county flags). This is white with a squarish logo showing local landmarks in purple line drawings above the the city name written in light greenish blue sans/serif capitals; thin golden border all (?) around the edge (not a fringe, cp. w/ the other flags on the photo). The image here is provisional, showing the visible bits from this photo — it may trigger memories.

A third flag?

Yet another, third version of the flag of the City of Tallahassee, Florida: Even the guy who took the picture, probably a local resident, is wondering what's going on?

When one looks at the official City of Tallahassee official website (, they feature a logo ( on their home, which is a star, exactly like the one you've pointed out in the Flickr picture. So I guess they have indeed changed the flag.

First flag

[Tallahassee, Florida] image located by Valentin Poposki, 13 December 2011

The first flag of the City of Tallahassee, Florida is shown on a postcard presented in a book Postcard History Series - Tallahassee" from Lynn M. Homan and Thomas Reilly. It can be seen in Google Books:, on page 9. Unfortunately, the picture is black and white. The only information is that the flag was adopted in 1915.
