Description of the flag

A white flag with a city seal in the center. The seal features a factory, boots and shoeboxes in the center and, in a ring around it, the city name and dates. Marlborough is in Middlesex County.

From the homepage:

"Marlborough, with its enviable location at the intersections of Routes 20 and 495, just minutes away from the Massachusetts Turnpike, and a few miles west of Route 128, is a thriving community with something for everyone. Incorporated as a town in 1660, and as a city in 1890, Marlborough still maintains its community spirit. Explore these pages and learn what Marlborough has to offer to businesses, residents, and tourists alike."

An explanation of the seal on the city flag, from

"In 1836, the community [of Marlborough] changed forever, when Samuel Boyd, 'the father of the city,' and his brother opened the first shoe manufacturer business. By 1890, Marlborough had become a major shoe- manufacturing center supplying both soldiers and civilians. In fact, this was such a major part of this community that when they incorporated as a city in 1890, the official seal was a factory, a shoebox, and a pair of boots."
