Introduction

Batman is a DC Comics super-hero, whose home is Gotham City.
Elias Granqvist, 29 April 2008


Gotham City

Albeit fictional, Gotham city is located in a real country, the US. From its name at least, it's definitely supposed to be a fictional New York.

[Very dark blue ~2:3 flag with small seal image centered on it surrounded
by wide ring of 13 small golden yellow stars pointing outwards (the ring
seems to be assymetrical as a whole, i.e., there is no one star at the
noon position).

The flag of Gotham City as used in at least one of the Dark Knight movies made can be seen in a short movie clip on Adventure from Chicago. Unfortunately the flag never really unfurls. However, a good picture is shown on the same site and another picture on Flickr.

It's a very dark blue ~2:3 flag with a small seal image centered on it surrounded by a wide ring of 13 small golden yellow stars pointing outwards (the ring seems to be assymetrical as a whole, i.e., there is no one star at the noon position).

The seal disc shows a sailship with "1620" in white on the sea. This is surrounded by a blue ring fimbriated white, seal-style, reading something in yellow capitals; behind the disc two crossed swords pointing upwards and a coil of rope edging it; laurel wreath made of two branches tied below and over the bottom part of all this a large golden yellow scroll reading "Gotham" in black serifed capitals.

The Batman movie "The Dark Knight" has a flag for Gotham City which is really that of New Hampshire with the name "Gotham" on a ribbon across the lower part of the state seal.
