Flag of New York

Adopted: April 6, 1915
(modified December 30, 1977)
Design: A horizontal tri-color of blue, white, and orange with a modified blue version of the Seal of New York City in the center.

The flags of New York City include the flag of New York City, the respective flags of the boroughs of The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island, and flags of certain city departments. The city flag is a vertical tricolor in blue, white, and orange and charged in the center bar with the Seal of New York City in blue. The tricolor design is derived from the flag of the Dutch Republic—the Prince's Flag—as used in New Amsterdam in 1625.
