Proportion 11:15
Adopted July 16, 1990
Designed by Paul Kraabel

The municipal flag of Seattle is teal and white, featuring the Seattle city logo (a portrait of Chief Seattle surrounded by two lines), with the words "City of Goodwill" above and "Seattle" below.

The flag was designed by architect David Wright and endorsed by Seattle City Councilmember Paul Kraabel. It was adopted on July 16, 1990, for use during the Goodwill Games.

The flag has been criticized for breaking conventional rules for good flag design, particularly its complex design that incorporates the city seal.

Proposals to redesign the flag were solicited in 2019 by The Seattle Times and The Stranger, with the latter running a public poll.
