Description of the flag

A partial view of the Bisbee flag shows that it contains the city logo, but there is some lettering, too. Here is photo, and logo.

By viewing the YouTube video source of the photo on the FOTW page, I was able to draw this flag.

Previous flag

According to the Douglas Dispatch, the previous flag of Bisbee was unveiled on July 4, 1970. The idea of a city flag was proposed by the Beautification Committee of the city. The art department of Cochise College appears to have judged designs in a contest where students of Bisbee could enter.

The winning design was submitted by Ernestine Chavez, at the time 11 year old student at Horace Mann School. The design had a blazing orange sun symbol rimmed in yellow, signifying Bisbee's agreeable climate, on a field of turquoise for copper ore. Three figures are on the sunburst: a mine chart, a mountain, and a yucca plant with yellow blossoms and a turquoise base. Among these figures is the former city motto in black letters, "City of Sunshine, Bisbee, Arizona".
