The San Francisco flag is a vivid symbol of the city's history and its will to survive. The San Francisco City flag depicts a phoenix rising from the ashes on a white field. Many assume the phoenix recognizes the city's triumph after the disastrous earthquake and fire of 1906; however, the flag predates the disaster and honors the spirit of San Franciscans after the fire of 1852 which destroyed the (mostly) wooden city. Its citizens quickly rebuilt San Francisco earning it the slogan, “The City that Knows How." Below the eagle is the city's motto which translates to “Gold in Peace and Iron in War."

San Francisco is the cultural, financial and commercial center of northern California. The city is named for St. Francis of Assisi, founder of the Franciscan Order. Much of San Francisco's early growth may be attributed to the gold rush in the late 1840s. Welcomed by the Golden Gate Bridge, the “City by the Bay" still attracts fortune-seekers, immigrants, artists and poets. San Francisco is the only consolidated city-county in California.
