The website at www.ci.scottsdale.az.us does not display any municipal heraldry. The logo simply consists of the words 'CITY OF SCOTTSDALE' in large dark gray capitals. To the left of these letters on a pale blue square that fades to white at the bottom is the outline form of a cowboy in slate gray riding a bucking bronco. His left arm is extended and grasps a sombrero, while both his hair and the horse itself are a dark slate gray. There is pale gray shading around the rear of the horse, creating a shadow effect. Beneath the last letters of the word 'SCOTTSDALE' is the word 'ARIZONA' in very small dark gray capitals.

I received an e-mail from the Executive Assistant to Mayor Mary Manross. She informs me that the cowboy on the bronco features as the centrepiece of the municipal flag. He rides his pony on a white square[?] in a blue field, but I was not furnished with any details of the dimensions of the flag, the shade of blue, etc.

The NAVA American City Flags website shows a variant of this flag, with the blue reaching the rim of the seal.
