"The Porterville Recorder", 14 January 2006, reports that the City of Porterville is sponsoring a "City Flag Design Contest". The public is encouraged to participate in submitting their entries for consideration of their design as
the official flag for the city. The design will be used in the creation of a regular 3 x 5- foot flag which will be used at various city-related functions. The flag design should be in full color, incorporate "The City of Porterville" into the flag design, and should be representative of the community as a whole. Participants are encouraged to avoid the use of specific school colors, mascots, etc. All entries must be received by 4 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20. The entries will be
reviewed by a City Flag Contest Committee and narrowed to the top five designs which will be presented to the City Council on Tuesday, Feb. 7 for the final selection of the winning design.

The website at www.ci.porterville.ca.us shows this city has both a seal and a logo, the latter being far more complex and interesting than the former. The seal is in the standard circular format, with a black outer ring containing the words 'CITY OF PORTERVILLE' in yellow block lettering at the top, two similarly
colored yellow lozenges at the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, and the word 'CALIFORNIA', likewise written in yellow block lettering at the bottom. The background color of the central image is white, and features two orange branches leaved and fruited proper, with their stems crossed saltirewise at the top. The logo is much more complex and interesting; it consists of several ribbons in grayish pink bordered black coiled tightly. In the center of these ribbons is a circle bordered black depicting at the bottom multicolored fruits and flowers on a green background and a blue sky at the top. A red horizontal bar runs transversely across the entire circumference of the circle, beginning some distance outside it to the left and continuing the same distance beyond it to the right. Above this bar are the words 'CITY OF' in small black block lettering, while the word 'PORTERVILLE' is written in large white block lettering across the bar; beneath the bar is the word 'CALIFORNIA' written in similar small block letters. At the very bottom of the logo, beneath the circle, is a ribbon similar to those described earlier with the municipal slogan 'The Good Life' written in black upper and lower case lettering.
