Orem is the sixth largest city in the state of Utah. The municipality is located in the heart of the Mormon Corridor. Special thanks to Dawnie Larsen for flag description and logo info.
Flag Inquiry Response: I am responding to your email regarding the Orem City flag. Although I don't have a picture of the flag, I can describe it for you...Orem City's flag is a simple design consisting of a white background with the Orem City logo in the middle. You can see our logo on our website at www.orem.org.
In explanation of our logo: On May 3, 1988, the City Council of Orem adopted the official logo of the City of Orem. R & R Advertising was the firm that was commissioned to develop the new logo - a professional, modern logo that would properly represent Orem.
Although perhaps unintentionally, the Orem logo contains symbolism that accurately represents the Community. The green tri- level triangle at the top of the logo represents Mount Timpanogos or perhaps all the mountains that make up the Wasatch Front as it passes through Orem. The word "Orem", done in a deep blue, represents the City of Orem itself. The deep blue brush stroke below the word "Orem" represents the Provo River as it runs adjacent to and through Orem. And the inverted green triangle at the bottom of the logo represents Utah Lake as it reflects the majesty of the mountains that border Orem.

At commons.widimedia.org, the
city flag is visible, hoisted on one of three poles in front of the City Center (40° 17' 53? N, 111° 41' 42.75?), the other two bearing the U.S. national flag (tallest, central pole), and the state flag of Utah (right side as seen from the building, same height as the city's).

A slightly different version of the logo with slender lettering and cyan/teal for green, on white background is at bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com. A variant of the logo, without lettering (yay!) and with red for green, also on white background, as the logo of the 2016 Orem Summerfest is at orem.org/images/stories/logo.jpg.

I just called the Orem City office and spoke to a couple of people who said the flag background is white. The flag reported earlier was likely a soiled flag.
