FLAG DESCRIPTION / HISTORY
The City of New Orleans flag consists of three gold fleur-de-lis arranged in a triangular pattern, two centered higher, one centered lower, on white field framed by a red horizontal band along the top edge and a blue horizontal band along the bottom edge. The red, white and blue colors match the colors of the flags of both the United States and France. The gold fleur-de-lis are borrowed from traditional French fleur-de-lis flags. The City of New Orleans flag was adopted by the Commission Council February 5, 1918 in honor of the City's Bi-Centennial.
The city of New Orleans roots began with French settlers in 1718. The territory was traded by King Louis XV to Spain in 1762 . After devastating fires in both 1788 and 1794, much of the French Quarter was rebuilt by the Spanish. Street names in the French Quarter are still identified by both French and Spanish signs. Control was ceded back to France in 1801, but sold two years later with the entire Louisiana Territory, by Emporer Napoleon to the United States in 1803. (ref; neworleanscvb.com, New Orleans History)
