Description of the flag

Sedona, Arizona, in the Red Rock area of Yavapai country. The image of the flag was originally seen on a sticker.

Light blue over red flag -- the dividing line is a landscape skyline (possibly the Red Rock area of Yavapai country); this line trims a large yellow disc (approx. diam. 2/3rds of the flag's height), which undoubtedly represents the Sun. The (red) bottom of the flag (approx. height 1/12th of the flag's height) is separated from the rest by a thin horizontal white stripe (approx. thickness 1/24th of the flag's height). Above this line, extending from the center, the lettering "SEDONA" in white bold sans capitals, set with the typeface "Lythograph".

The city flag was initiated by a local merchant who runs a flag and kite shop. He ran his own independent contest and had prominent local people judge the entries. The finalist's flag was then presented to the Council for their adoption as the City flag by a motion. The symbolism on the flag simply represents the rock formations around Sedona.

City Seal

The website at showed a triangular seal with a crimson border and with the apex pointing downward. The top of the seal consists of a side profile of Midgely Bridge, and underneath its arc a blue sky with fleecy white clouds is visible. The foreground consists of two canyon walls in earth tones, spanned by the trestle. The lower right vertex of the triangle contains the words 'CITY OF' in small white capitals, with the word 'SEDONA' written in the same fashion in the lower left vertex. At the apex of the triangle there is a light blue diamond.

The city logo . . . was the result of a contest that was held when we first incorporated in 1988. Local artists then entered the contest and the top three [designs] were then voted on by the citizens. The winner was an artist named Sunshower.

The bridge at the top of the city seal is actually a side profile of Midgely Bridge, a roadway bridge immediately north of Sedona's city limits, on Hwy. 89A en route to Flagstaff. The bridge was built in 1939.
