The City Clerk's Office has informed me that the city has neither a municipal flag nor a city seal, merely a rubber stamp with the words 'City of Davis, California' and a space for the name and title of the individual who is responsible for signing the document. If there is any requirement for a seal to be used at the top of a document, they simply use an ordinary piece of paper with the municipal logo (see below).
The logo exists only in black on a white surface such as a document, headed paper, etc. It consists of what in the U.S. as called a 'Big-Wheel' bicycle and in the UK is known as a 'Penny-farthing', because the small wheel looks like a farthing (an obsolete coin worth one quarter of an old penny) and an old-fashioned penny piece. The word 'Davis' is written in a combination of upper and lower case letters, with the capital letter 'D' bisecting the large front wheel of the bicycle.

The website at www.city.davis.ca.us/topic/bicycles.cfm gives a description of the city logo.
