Description of the flag

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.
Ron Lahav, 25 October 2005

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.
Greg Biggs, 25 October 2005

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.
