City of Gibralter, Michigan Flags
The City of Gibraltar flag’s design is a reminder of the areas early history. With many steamboats crossing the Great Lakes by 1837, the U.S. government appropriated funds for a lighthouse at the mouth of the Detroit River in Gibraltar to aid in navigation. The orange circle behind the lighthouse represents the setting sun with the water below and the V-formation of a skein of geese flying across.
