Description of the flag

From www.cheneyfreepress.com:
Residents will soon notice a slight change in Cheney, high above the roof tops.

The city of Cheney has a new city flag, which can be seen in the council chambers and will soon be visible atop flag poles at the Police Department, the Public Works building and at City Hall. Planning commissioner Graeme Webster and Cheney Police Cmdr. Rick Campbell designed the gold-fringe bordered flag, which features the city logo in a white field, with dark blue fields to the left and right of the white. City Administrator Arlene Fisher went to a conference in Olympia, Wash., she realized many cities have a flag, but Cheney doesn't. Campbell said he and Webster got to talking during a VFW pancake feed and decided to take the initiative and design one. A brainstorming session produced a sketch, which Campbell finalized on his home computer.

The design was simple. "We took the city logo and put it on a flag," Campbell said. They later approached Fisher with the design and she gave her blessing to go ahead with getting the flag made. Webster explained the choice of the colors. He said white represents purity and blue represents passion and tradition. Webster's earlier choice of color was of a lighter shade of blue, but that was changed to a dark shade because the contrast was stronger and it resembled the blue field on the American flag. [...]
Fisher said an unveiling of the flag is not currently scheduled, but speculates it would be later in the fall, perhaps during Veteran's Day.

The same logo is also shown in the town website's header, though there the descending eagle is rendered noticeably differently, with only one visible wing. The town appears to have wisely elected to omit its municipal motto from the flag ("Keep moving or we shoot you in the face," I understand a tribute to its namesake.)
