This is the commonly seen flag and is the flag referenced in city documents.

The "Big-Ugly-'G'" flag (as I call it) was supposed to replace the 3-stripe when it was repealed, but the city of Garland has never done this (although it was supposed to do it?).

Maybe I can clarify some information about the 2 Garland flags. According to Donna Irwin of the Garland Community Relations Department, both flags are in use. The official flag is the "Ugly G", displaying the city seal. The image she sent me shows the state map behind it, and is the flag shown both in the NAVA survey and in the recent AMERICAN CITY FLAGS book. The flag with 3 stripes is the logo flag and according to Ms. Irwin is seen more these days than the official flag, a trend, incidentally, that has occurred in some other cities like Grand Rapids, MI and Rochester, NY. The logo flag, by the way, is also shown in ACF and discussed there.

The NAVA image at www.nava.org/.../Garland.jpg shows a dark blue flag with yellow bordure and a large light blue disc centered on it, also with yellow a bordure; on the disc a large dark blue horizontally stretched "G" with yellow fimbriation superimposed on a yellow solid outline map of Texas with "City of Garland" on the upper part of the letter and "Texas" on the lower, both set in yellow sans-serif capitals, and over all a black-fimbriated large yellow star showing the location of Garland.
