The flag of the City of Allen Park, Michigan, is white with the city seal on it. Thanks to Michael I. Mizzi, City Clerk, who sent me the information and official description of the city seal, including image of it:
"Resolved, that the City of Allen Park adopt as its official emblem a circular design, the inner ring of which shall have a white background on which is a shield divided into quarters. On the upper left quarter shall be emblazoned a flag patterned after the original American flag, with thirteen white stars on a field of blue and thirteen alternating red and white stripes, symbolizing that Allen Park is a part of the territory embraced by the Northwest Ordinance of 1787; the upper right quarter of which is bisected by a diagonal line on one section of which is a blue British Lion on a field of white and on the other section a white French Fleur-de-lis on a red background symbolizing that the City is on ground at times under British or French rule. The lower left quarter shall have a white map of Michigan on a white background with diagonal blue lines. The location of the city shall be indicated on the map by a red marking thereon. The lower right quarter shall have an Indian wigwam set against a background of pine trees outlined in blue on a field of white depicting that the lands on which the city is situated were one time forest covered and tribal lands inhabited by American Indians.
Atop the shield, drawn in blue, shall be a figure of the American Eagle with spread wings covering the full width of the shield symbolizing authority and protection there under. There shall be an outer ring of blue, outlined in white, in which shall be inscribed in white "City of Allen Park", two stars and "Founded in 1927" signifying the year in which the community was established."
