Flag Description

The city seal, which is in the center of the flag, has a white and yellow background with medium blue writing. The flag itself is half medium blue and half white, divided by a diagonal line. The logo/seal came from a design contest conducted by the city council when the city was incorporated on June 30, 1964. The name of the contest winner is unknown.

Here is the significance of each of the three fields - Palm Trees are very common in So Cal and many are found in Lomita. Lomita means 'Little Hill" in Spanish, hence the hills in the upper left quadrant. The area itself was founded and named in 1907, but did not incorporate until 1964, hence the municipal code in the lower left.
