The former flag was seen in color in an online auction and is described in American City Flags. The field is blue with a dark gray phoenix, head facing the fly and wings outstretched, reising from a red and orange flames above a black and yellow torse, and behind it a yellow sun with 48 orange rays. Beneath is a white ribbon, edged gold with the name CITY OF PHOENIX ARIZONA in gold. According to the report in American City Flags, the flag was carried in the city's combined Industrial Week and Armistice Day Parade, 11 November, 1921, and adopted by the city council at its meeting of 23 November 1921. Presumably it remained the city flag until the new flag was adopted on 14 February 1990.
