The flag is ~3:5 golden yellow over dark blue descending diagonal with a large seal centered on it. The seal shows a sun disc with rays at the upper fly side and two local cityscapes, with text legends, divided by the longest ray, all in golden yellow, white, light blue and dark blue. On the seal rim, in dark blue, golden yellow lettering reading "Santa Ana" above, and "California" below, separated by stars.
This seal/logo is at www.santa-ana.org/images/sa_logo.gif and at www.ci.santa-ana.ca.us/images/sa_logo.gif, mirrors of the official site. At www.ocalmanac.com/images/seal_SantaAna.gif, the same logo but devoid of the buildings and shown in sepia shades.

Yet another official city emblem is a black square with "City of Santa Ana" in white serifed capitals vertically squeezed and set in two lines, "Ana" isolated in the second line, "city of" in much smaller letters. This logo is used in official city administration forms on line, see: www.ci.santa-ana.ca.us/pba/planning/documents/Minor_Exception_Application.pdf and possibly in other media, but apparently not on flags.

According to this photo, flag is with an ascending diagonal instead of descending diagonal: www.flickr.com/photos/spike_in_irvine/4282762189.
