The flag of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, consists of a blue field, with the city emblem centered in the middle of the flag. The emblem should not be confused with the city seal. The emblem consists of a white keystone with a red border, and incorporates the capitol dome which denotes the city's significance as the state capital of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The current flag came into use in the early 1990s.[1] Harrisburg received the All-America City Award given by the National Civic League in 1984-85 and 1990. An older version of the city’s flag incorporated the city emblem with a dark blue field and yellow border.[2]
