Flag Description

 www.ci.los-altos.ca.us/uploads/2975/02-04-09.pdf :
"Recognition of Former Mayor Roger Eng (1981-82 and 1986-87)
This night, the Council paid tribute to former Mayor Roger Eng, who served two terms as Mayor in 1981-82 and 1986-87...... He was responsible for the creation of the first City flag, City Medallions, and City pins, which he had made during a personal exploratory sister city trip to Taiwan. The silk City flag in the Council Chambers was his gift to the City."

Seal

[City Seal] image located by Paul Bassinson, 18 May 2019

http://www.ci.los-altos.ca.us shows the city seal is quite simple, and consists of a white outer ring with the words 'CITY OF LOS ALTOS' written at the top in black block letters; this is then followed by a small black five-pointed star, which is in turn followed by the word 'CALIFORNIA' similarly written. At the bottom of the outer ring is what appears to be the municipal slogan, but the black block letters are too small for me to make out the text. The central image is multicolored and depicts a landscape in natural or proper colors.

I think it may be the incorporation date- "Incorporated December 1 1952" - rather than a slogan. The minutes of the city council reveal Los Altos does have a flag, but unfortunately no description or image is included www.ci.los-altos.ca.us/uploads/2975/02-04-09.pdf :

"Recognition of Former Mayor Roger Eng (1981-82 and 1986-87)
Mayor La Poll noted that, throughout 2002, the City Council would be honoring former Los Altos mayors for their contributions to the City. The recognition is one of a number of activities leading up to the 50th anniversary of the City's incorporation on December 1, 1952. This night, the Council paid tribute to former Mayor Roger Eng, who served two terms as Mayor in 1981-82 and 1986-87...... He was responsible for the creation of the first City flag, City Medallions, and City pins, which he had made during a personal exploratory sister city trip to Taiwan. The silk City flag in the Council Chambers was his gift to the City."
