Description of the flag

Fayette and the city of Lexington were merged a few years ago creating a metro government, whose name should be reflected. A flag was adopted - Lexington did not have a flag before the merge.
Phil Nelson, 7 September 2003

Lexington is twinned with Deauville (France), and the flag flies there. Taking a look at https://www.google.fr/maps, the flag on the roundabout of Deauville's twin cities in 2008 / 2010 was already with light blue shades and black letters on ochre circle. So does the one at http://www.kentucky.com/. As far as the ratio is concerned, it looks 2:3.

Variations of the flag

I suppose this to be the county flag, it was a white field with a white rectangle framed dark gold and blue and in the middle a seal which I can recognize on the county's website. Lexington-Fayette is twinned with  Deauville, France.
Olivier Touzeau, 7 November 2001

Tom Eblen shows a different version of the seal, consistent with the one I drew on the flag I sent 15 years ago (darker blue, darker ochre, blue letters on white circle, dark blue central disk): tomeblen.bloginky.com from tomeblen.bloginky.com. This variant was spotted in Deauville in June 2001. Ratio of 3:5 (I was not an expert on ratios and drawing at the time but I obviously tried to make a more elongate image because of the lack of data.)

Community pride flag

Below is a news article detailing the adoption of a new flag for Lexington, Kentucky:  www.kentucky.com.
Paul Bassinson, 2 May 2017

Important to note that this is not an official city flag, just a "community pride" flag.
Dave Fowler, 2 May 2017

For this image I used the same style of horse and shade of blue as used in the Lexington tourism logo, as mentioned in the article.
