According to www.reelectruthsterling.com/pages/bio2.html and www.cityoflamesa.com/Government/CityCouncil_RuthSterling.htm La Mesa does seem to have a city flag, designed or proposed by Councilwomen Ruth Sterling. Unfortunately, neither site has an image of that flag.

The website at www.cityoflamesa.com shows the municipal logo with a curved top, two vertical sides, and a horizontal base. The upper portion of the logo has a white background color, divided
sinuously from the green lower portion. In the upper portion there is a yellow sun with dark gray shading along the bottom, and to the right of this are two green palm trees of differing heights arising from the green lower portion. Along the curved top portion of the logo the words 'CITY OF LA MESA' are written in blue block letters. The bottom of the logo is green, and this in turn is divided into two irregular portions by a curving white line, above which is written the city motto in white upper and lower case letters, 'Jewel of the Hills'. The URL address www.cityoflamesa.com/news/FlagDayParade.htm contains a
description of this event, which is apparently an annual occasion.
