Green-white-orange horizontal tricolor. A trip to Coral Gables, FL (a southern suburb of Miami) found this flag flying outside a bank on Ponce de Leon Boulevard, along with the U.S. and FL flags. I assume it is the flag of Coral Gables, though there was nobody to ask, it being Sunday and all the shops being closed.

The flag of Coral Gables is divided into three equal horizontal bands: the top band is green, the middle band is white with a city seal in the center, and the bottom band is orange.

The photograph I took of the flag outside the First Union Bank at 2100 Ponce de Leon Boulevard clearly shows no seal.

This photo is a reasonably clear shot, yet I cannot be sure there is a seal
there. I think there is light green one on the white stripe but I'm not
positive. There may have been one on the flag you originally saw but it escaped
notice, and it may be on the flag in the photo you link to above but below the
camera's resolution. An image of the Coral Gables seal can be found
I'm not sure how close it is to the one on the flag. For one thing, the
background stippling may be absent.

http://www.citybeautiful.net/CGWeb/images/seal150.gif from the official web
server, I made the attached file. The seal is colored in shades of green to
match Ned's supposition based on
it seems to be usually shown in shades of brown/golden when standing alone.
