A blue-white-blue vertical tricolor. The seal of Clarksville is quite
interesting. The open book obviously represents Austin Peay State University,
which is located in Clarksville.

Austin Peay is only the most current education institution Clarksville has.
Before this was Stewart College, since relocated to Memphis, and the Clarksville
Female Academy, which closed it doors many years ago. Austin Peay now sits where
Stewart College used to be.

According to the city ordinance adopting the flag, the three stars represent
the three Grand Divisions of the State of Tennessee. The middle star,
representing Middle Tennessee, is larger because that is the division in which
Clarksville is located.
