Paducah's flag is vertical red-white-red (1:2:1) with an Indian head in a circle of stars on the white stripe.

The Indian head most likely represents Chickasaw Chief Paduke who sold the
land for the site of Paducah to Andrew Jackson in 1818. The land was reportedly
Chief Paduke's favorite hunting ground. The land was originally granted to
General George Rogers Clark and later the city of Paducah was laid out by
General William Clark in 1827.
