The Cleveland city flag was designed in 1895 by Ms. Susan Hepburn, a Cleveland high school student. Ms. Hepburn's classic design beautifully captures the ideals and prosperity of the city that would come to be the “Rock and Roll Capital of the World." The Cleveland flag features a tricolor banner of red, white and blue. The center white stripe displays an American Shield with the word “Cleveland" across its center and the year 1796 at its base. 1796 is the year Gen. Moses Cleveland founded and named the city. The lower section of the shield is in red, the upper section blue. In the upper left corner of the shield are an anvil, hammer and wheel. The upper right corner bears an anchor, windlass and oars. All of the images symbolize Cleveland as a city of great industry and respect its deep maritime interests. Cleveland is a major port on the Great Lakes.
The Cleveland city motto, Progress and Prosperity" denotes the economic boom period Cleveland experience in the early parts of the 20th century. For more information about Cleveland City flags see the description tab below.
