Description of the flag
Fairfax City, Virginia, an independent city incorporated in 1961. As an independent city, it is not part of Fairfax County, although it is surrounded by the county and in fact the county's courthouse, jail, and main library are located within the city limits.
The flag is a strange shade of pale grayish blue which I may not quite have captured, with the city seal on the center. The seal is a rounded triangle with the coat of arms on the center, a variation on the Fairfax family arms used as the county coat of arms. The city arms are barry argent and gules a lion rampant within a bordure embattled azure. The supporters are a Confederate and a Continental officer.
Fairfax City is essentially a bedroom community for Washington as well an attractive restaurant and shopping center. It is also densely populated with lawyers serving what I understand is the state's busiest court system.
