Description of the flag

Garden Grove is a city centrally located in northern Orange County, California, United States. As of 2004, the city population was 170,000 people. State Route 22, also known as the Garden Grove Freeway, passes through the city running east-west. Garden Grove is home to a substantial Vietnamese American population, forming the northern edge of Orange County's Little Saigon, and also to a large Korean American population centered along Garden Grove Boulevard west of Brookhurst Street.

History:
Garden Grove was founded by Alonzo Cook in 1874. A school district and Methodist church were organized that year. It remained a small rural crossroads until the arrival of the railroad in 1905. The rail connection helped the town prosper with crops of oranges, walnuts, chili peppers and -- later -- strawberries. In 1933, much of the town's central business district was destroyed by the Long Beach earthquake, and one person was killed. The post-World War II boom led to rapid development, and Garden Grove was incorporated as a city in 1956 with  about 44,000 residents.

By 1960, population had grown to 85,000; by 1970 it was 120,000. In the late Seventies and Eighties a significant Asian population (primarily Vietnamese and Korean) began to locate in the area. In recent years, Harbor Boulevard has become a booming entertainment and tourism area, served by nine high-rise hotels. The annual Strawberry Festival, over Memorial Day weekend, is one of the largest community festivals in the western United States, attracting an estimated 250,000 visitors. It celebrates the city's agricultural past, which include crops such as chili peppers, eggs, oranges, walnuts and strawberries. One strawberry field remains within city limits, at Euclid Street and Hazard Avenue.
The flag of the city is shown on the city website: www.ci.garden-grove.ca.us/.
