The flag is the city seal on a white rectangle. The dark stripe at the hoist is just reinforcement for the grommets. The picture on the seal consists of Shasta Dam and Shasta Lake in the foreground with Mount Shasta in the background. Shasta Lake is a man-made lake formed by Shasta Dam on the Sacramento River and provides water for electricity generation and irrigation. The lake is also used for recreational purposes. Mount Shasta is the second highest volcanic peak of the Cascade Range at 14,179 feet (4,322 m) and has facilities for winter sports.
