Here is the description as it appears in the city ordinance:
11.01 DESCRIPTION OF FLAG.
A green background, symbolic of the green hills and of the many different kinds of trees native to the area and Indiana, on which the following are emblazoned:
White shield edged in gold, symbolic of the character and courage of the varied nationalities of our ancestors, with a gold torch thereon, representing enlightenment and liberty; and the numerals "1813", the year of the establishment of the City of New Albany, all within a semicircle of 19 gold stars, representing Indiana as the nineteenth state; and a gold pilot wheel in the lower right-hand corner, symbolic of our historic background as a river city.
(Res. R-62-7, passed 10-1-1962)
