Galt does not have a municipal flag. The designer of the municipal logo is unknown, as is the date of adoption. They have been in use since at least 1996. The water tower in the logo is the tallest structure in Galt. It is visible for several miles on clear days and is used as a landmark in aerial navigation. The Sandhill Crane marks the largest breeding ground for these birds near Galt. The wheat sheaves represent the importance of agriculture to the city.
Liz Aguire, City Clerk of Galt, 20 October 2004
The web page at www.ci.galt.ca.us shows the logo which consists of a large black circle, broken at the bottom by a highway road sign which interrupts the arc of the circle. The sign is white with a black edge, and the words 'City of' written in very small olive lower-case letters and the word 'GALT' in large black block lettering. Within the circle the letter 'G' is written in extremely large block lettering. Within this letter
is a sandhill crane in full flight, with wings, neck, and legs extended; the bird is in shades of gray and black, and its wings penetrate above the letter itself. To the right of the crane is a water tower, all in very pale gray, while within the cusp of the letter are several stalks of golden wheat.
