Description of the flag

Based on images from annual meetings of the Alliance of Washington Cities, the new city flag appeared in 2015.

The former and current seal feature a branch of hazelnut, the town's namesake.

Tukwila’s earliest residents were members of the Duwamish Tribe who made their homes along the Black and Duwamish Rivers. They named the area Tukwila for the lush forests of hazelnut trees which grew throughout the area. The Duwamish lived in cedar longhouses, hunted and fished, picked wild berries, and navigated the rivers for trading with neighboring people.
