I drew the flag of Juneau, Alaska, based on my own sighting in a trip to Alaska in 1996), and based on NAVA's American City Flags.

There appears to have been an earlier flag, about which little is known. The city hall personnel speculate that it may have been the flag of the city before it unified with the surrounding borough (county) on 1 July 1970, when Juneau became known as the City and Borough of Juneau. This flag has proportions of 4:7 and a gold field. In the canton is an Alaska state flag with a white border on its bottom and fly sides. This border is itself edged in red. Centered on the field between the canton and the fly is a circular emblem. Its center is a light blue disk with a black totem-like figure with two bird heads. The head turned toward the hoist is dark and may be an eagle; the head turned toward the fly is a white goose or duck with a yellow bill. Around the disk is a white ring on which JUNEAU appears arched across the top, and 1880, the date of Juneau's first settlement, below.
