Description of the flag

"The green nylon flags measure three feet by five feet, suitable for a standard residential flagpole. A portion of the City seal is screen-printed in the upper left corner on one side in white and gold ink. The City seal has Ireland's three-leaf shamrock which is there as a testimonial to the contributions, made by the Irish families of Edina's Cahill settlement. There were also Scottish settlers in northern Edina and so there is also the thistle that appears diagonally across from the shamrock. The stylized four-leaf clover graphic represents Highway 100 (north and south) and the Crosstown Highway (east and west). It also symbolizes the division of the city into its four quarters."
Thanks to Alexandra Sifferlin, Communications Intern, City of Edina, Minnesota.
