From Easy Reader web page reports that a senior at Redondo Union high School, Vanessa Pons, was the winning designer of a new city flag in 1999. The
16-year-old earned $500 for her design, a simple colorful depiction of the pier, the sun and a boat. The flag will be featured at the annual League of California Cities meeting later this month. The design will grace the city's first ever
civic flag. The design is likely that used as a logo at the top of the Redondo Beach home pages.

The Redondo Beach municipal seal (www.southbaycities.com/sbcities.htm ) is in the now familiar circular format, and has a thick rope outer border cable laid in silver and black, with a similar but much thinner border similarly colored. The outer ring is silver, with the words 'CITY OF REDONDO BEACH' blindstamped in block lettering at the top, two small blindstamped dots at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions, and the words 'INCORPORATED APRIL 29,1892' similarly blindstamped at the bottom. The central image depicts a maritime scene, with seabirds flying in a pale blue sky, a white- hulled vessel with three black masts and an unidentifiable black flag at the fore moored to a black jetty at the right and left respectively of the image, and both floating on or projecting into an ultramarine sea.
