Description of the flag

The Staunton City Code ( give detail of the seal and flag, all shown in black and white only. However, the arms contain "two chevrons sable", so the cross may indeed be black and white. However, the seal is supposed to have a "fox proper", so there should be at least some color in the seal.

The arms on the center of the flag are those of Lady Rebecca Staunton, for whom the city was named: Argent two chevrons within a bordure engrailed Sable; for crest, a fox statant proper; the mottoes (above the shield) Moderata durant and (below the shield) En dieu ma foy. The arms were adopted by the city on 22 January 1926. (Source: Staunton City Code 1985, §1.05.160).
