Description of the flag

The flag of the city can be seen at www.troyny.gov/city_council.html which shows a large version hung on a wall. The flag is a vertical triband of red/white/red and has TROY, N.Y. and an emblem on the white stripe. The emblem looks like a seal, and has an Uncle Sam top hat on it. It may be the current seal of the city, but I cannot confirm that or find an image of the seal.

Troy is the 'birthplace' of the "Uncle Sam" character. During the U.S. Civil War, a meatpacker in Troy shipped meat to the Union army, and the crates were stamped US for, of course, United States. The soldiers started to say that the meat came from 'our Uncle Sam.' And as they say, "the rest is history."
