The flag seems to be a logo on a white
background. The logo has the words Redcliffe City in a smallcap serif
font, beneath a blue rectangle. The rectangle contains a stylised picture
of a yacht on the sea in front of cliffs. The yacht is depicted by two
white sails, the cliffs by two red and pink quadrilaterals seperated
from the sea by a white line. The cliffs reach the left of the logo, but
not the right. In the blue above the cliffs (sky), there is a yellow

The official version of the logo as depicted on Redcliffe City Council's own web site has a slightly different colouring from that featured on the flag manufacturer's web site. Moreover, the logo on the city council's web site has the words 'Redcliffe' above the logo and the words 'City Council' below the logo in what looks like the same font.If you go to the Redcliffe Online web site, you can see some photographs of the Australia Day celebrations, Saturday, 24 January 2004, where, although there is no wind, it can just about be seen that the version being flown is that shown on the flag manufacturer's web site.
On the city council's web site is their explanation of the symbolism of their logo:
"The main elements of the red cliffs, sun, sails and water reflect the main visual themes of Redcliffe's character. Embodied by colour, the symbol presents the bright outlook of the Council and the residents of the peninsula."and from the same page, information on the council's Coat of Arms, which features the head of an Aborginal Elder as its crest.
