Description of the flag

The City Clerk's Office has informed me that the city has neither a municipal flag nor a city seal, merely a rubber stamp with the words 'City of Davis, California' and a space for the name and title of the individual who is responsible for signing the document. If there is any requirement for a seal to be used at the top of a document, they simply use an ordinary piece of paper with the municipal logo (see below).
    The logo exists only in black on a white surface such as a document, headed paper, etc. It consists of what in the U.S. as called a 'Big-Wheel' bicycle and in the UK is known as a 'Penny-farthing', because the small wheel looks like a farthing (an obsolete coin worth one quarter of an old penny) and an old-fashioned penny piece. The word 'Davis' is written in a combination of upper and lower case letters, with the capital letter 'D' bisecting the large front wheel of the bicycle.

In response to a proposal, on June 20, 2018, by Aiden Ramey of the Davis Vexillology Club to have its contest-winning design be adopted as the Davis's official flag, the city council unanimously approved having a popular, long-used, unofficial logo-based flag be adopted. However, the club was encouraged to keep working on a new flag for the city.

During this video of the CC meeting (http://davis.granicus.com/player/clip/810?), the flag discussion starts at about 1:27. The history of the logo and unofficial flag are described, Mr. Ramey proposes the club's flag, and the city council adopts the logo flag. A small version of the imminently official flag was shown.

A table cover that resembles the flag is seen on the city’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CityofDavis/photos/a.824685150897718/1587517721281120/?type=3&theater
