Sometime between August 2018 and 2021, Evanston started using a new flag with a new logo. It appears to depict houses by the Bear River as well as trees. It also shows a train, perhaps paying homage to the fact the municipality exists because of the railroad.

According to Evanston: Boom-Bust-Politics, the first flag of Evanston was first adopted in 1992 as official by Resolution 92-14. The resolution adopting the flag was introduced by Councilwoman Julie Lehman and adopted unanimously. There seems to not be a specific designer, as the city council and mayor took part in the flag's design. However, it is described as having the city's seal in gold in the center of the Wyoming bucking horse. I am not sure when this was dropped or if it even made it onto the final version of the actual flag, although I'd consider it likely it did.

The flag contains the old logo, which has the motto "Fresh Air, Freedom and Fun" while also being in red white and blue, which seems to not be a coincidence, but rather it seems to take direct inspiration of the American flag's colors. The logo also depicts stylized mountains, which watch over the city, perhaps in specific the Medicine Butte. In the center is a man on a Wyoming bucking horse. My guess is that the stars seem to have really no significance besides probably being an extension of the American flag, as the number does not seem to correlate to a state number, etc.
