About Spokane Flag Commission

The City of Spokane has had several flag designs throughout the years, and adopted different designs as the official city flag in 1912, 1958, and 1977. Lloyd L. Carlson, who also designed the famous "Mobius strip" symbol for the World's Fair held in Spokane, Expo '74, designed the current city flag. The City of Spokane intends to update its flag to provide a symbol of which all people in Spokane can be proud and which represents the city we love.
