The borough of Brooklyn, where I grew up, was an independent city till the end of the 19th century. Description: A flag combining the colors orange, white and blue arranged in perpendicular bars of equal dimensions (the blue being nearest to the flagstaff) with the standard design of the seal of the city in blue upon the middle, or white bar, bearing the number 1625, which colors shall be the same as those of the flag of the United Netherlands in use in the year sixteen hundred twenty-five.
In September 1609 Henry Hudson, commander of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) ship Halve Maen (Half Moon) discovered Manhattan. King Charles II of Great Britain disregarded the rights of the Dutch over New Netherland and granted it in 1664 to his brother James, Duke of York and Albany. The New York City Flag from c.1825 to 1915 is unofficially described as being the New York City Seal in blue on white. Manhattan, his right arm bent, his right hand resting on the top of the shield, his left hand holding the upper end of a bow, the lower end rests on the ground. A flag combining the colors orange, white and blue, arranged in perpendicular bars of equal dimensions (the blue being nearest to the staff) with the standard design of the seal of the city in blue upon the middle, or white bar, omitting the legend "Sigillum Civitatis Novi Eboraci," which said colors shall be the same as those of the flag of the United Netherlands in use in the year 1626. The colors are chosen to commemorate the Dutch who brought the love of civil liberty and the ideals of democratic government with them. The first official flag was adopted with the blue-white-orange tricolor and the year 1664 written on it.
Description: The same in design as the official flag of the city, except that upon the middle or white bar, and above the design of the seal in a semicircle, there shall be five blue five-pointed stars, typifying the five boroughs of the city.
The official flag of the mayor shall be the same in design as the official flag of the city. Recalling my train ride to Montreal, I saw an unusual "maple leaf" flag -- made doubly unusual by the fact that I saw it well before I'd reached Quebec. The City of New York Parks Department flag displays the leaf of a London Plane Tree, Platanus x acerifolia, one of the most commonly-planted trees in the city.


During 1998, in observance of the centennial of New York City's emergence as a municipality of five boroughs, the Department of Correction formally adopted as its official flag the design displayed here. The colors that predominate are those found in the Department emblematic shoulder patch: orange, blue, white and gold. First, the date appearing on the 1915 seal was changed from 1664, when the English captured the city, to 1625, the date of the original founding of the city by the Dutch. The VOC however was not interested, although in the next years still some voyages were made by Dutch skippers.
The official flag of the mayor shall be the same in design as the official flag of the city, except that upon the middle or white bar there shall be above the design of the seal in a semi-circle, five blue five-pointed stars; the dimensions of such flag shall be thirty-three inches by forty-four inches. The 250th anniversary is clearly not a coincidence, I would say that the anniversary probably prompted the flag and seal redesign. Upon the middle or white bar, however, and above the design of the seal in a semi-circle, there shall be five blue five-pointed stars, typifying the five boroughs of the city.
In fact, it was in New York City, as the train passed a sports stadium of some kind -- it looked like it may have been laid out for football or soccer. The five stars surrounding the City Seal on the orange field represent the five boroughs in which the Department operates its facilities. The boroughs are also counties, making New York (City) one of the only (perhaps *the* only) cities in the U.S.
In an 1825 print of the opening of the Erie Canal, the flag is shown on a ship in a wood cut illustration as being the arms on a plain field. The stripes are not arranged horizontal but vertical to not make it an imitation of the early Dutch flags but a new flag, and for better displaying the seal. I'm guessing the Council flag is like the Mayoral flag with the word above the seal (and the crest). The numerals to the left and right of the stars-surrounded seal spell out the year that the Department was created as a separate agency.


The very same day both the province and the city were renamed New York in honor of their new ruler. In a lithograph regarding Abraham Lincoln's death in 1865, the flag is shown as white with the arms in the center and a black mourning border. The flag follows the practice that the darkest bar is placed next to the staff, like the French and Belgian. But note the following: in 1975, NYC changed the date on its seal from 1664 to the year 1625, marking the founding of New Amsterdam.
The sixteen blue and white stripes represent the number of major facilities operated by the Department at the time of the design adoption. In 1621 the newly-organized Dutch West India Company (GWC) was given an octroi by the Dutch Estates General for the monopoly of America and the west coast of Africa.
That same year, Richmond Borough changed its name to Staten Island Borough, moving from an English to a Dutch name, and incidentally acquired a new flag (more on this below). Most attractive was the trade in beaver skins, and a beaver was the main feature on the New Netherland provincial seal. With the Peace of Breda in 1667 the Dutch recognized their lost definitive, but in return got Suriname. In 1625 Director-General Pieter Minuit bought the island of Manhattan from the Indians and built there Fort Amsterdam and laid the foundations of New Amsterdam which became the capital of New Netherland and the other Dutch Colonies in the Americas.
