Description of the Flag

The NAVA image at www.nava.org/Flag%20Design/City%20Survey%202004/city_flag_photos/Trenton.jpg and shown in the American Flag Survey (2004) and American City Flags (Purcell, 2003) is a ~3:5 dark blue and gold vertical bicolor with the seal centered on it (seal diam. ~2/3 of the flag height). The seal is a white disc with the coat of arms surrounded by lettering reading "Seal of the city of Trenton", from seven to five o'clock, and "1792", both in golden serif capitals.

The coat of arms is Azure three buff-colored sheaves; the crest is a horse head looking dexter drawn in blue, above a blue and white torse; from each upper tips of the shield a hook with a dangling chain (?). The seal is rimmed in white pearls around an inner line. As drawn on the flag, everything is either golden or blue, on white, and there seems to be a thin white fimbriation all around the seal as it seats on the flag background.

Before the adoption of this official flag, the city had used a similar unofficial flag for a number of years, except the city seal was centered on the blue stripe at the hoist.
