The NAVA image at www.nava.org/ and shown in the American Flag Survey and American City Flags is a white flag with a bicolor diagonal descending from top hoist to mid-bottom, light green and light blue; on the middle of the blue stripe, extending outwards into the background and into the green stripe, a white disc with thick black edge and a golden yellow 36-rayed sun centered on its edge at the top fly quadrant; inside the disc four stick figures holding hands and the words "Children of the Sun" in small black capitals; on the lower fly the words "City of Spokane" in black serif capitals.

According to www.spokesman.com/picture-stories/spokanes-flag, the flag was [mainly] lilac colored. Not surprising since the flag proclaims Spokane as "The Lilac City".

This flag is shown on an old postcard from 1912, so I presumed this is the old city flag. The post card was in a book called Vintage Postcards from Old Spokane. Written by Duane Broyles and Howard Ness.

The source address at Remi1000.com is now defunct but at tornadocreekpublications.com/VintagePostcards.htm is information about the book. It is a dark blue ~6:11 flag with a narrow white horizontal mid-stripe and a narrow white hoist pentagon (i.e., joint vertical stripe and triangle) and on the latter a golden yellow 16-rayed sun (with long collateral and longitudinal tips, and longer axial tips) charged with a thick blue sans-serif upper case "S".
