Louisville and Jefferson County merged into a metro government in January 2003. This is the document enacting their seal and flag.

A blue flag, with the seal centered - a large gold fleur-de-lis, two gold stars, the date 1778 in blue, LOUISVILLE JEFFERSON COUNTY in gold, and METRO in white on a blue background all written around the rim.

I picked this flag up some time ago on eBay. It is 4 foot x 6 foot in size,
and I do not know why it is different from the one shown above.

The stars represented the 13 states which existed at Louisville's founding in 1778, while Kentucky was part of Virginia. The fleur-de-lis are in honor of King Louis XVI of France, after whom Louisville was named because of the support of France during the American Revolution.

This is the flag of the period right before consolidating.
