Description of the flag

The website at shows a very striking seal is in a circular format, maroon on a white background, with identically colored external and internal borders. The top of the outer ring contains the words 'City of San Juan Capistrano' in stylized maroon script; at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions there are two small maroon dots, and at the bottom of the outer ring the word 'California' is similarly written. The central image depicts the saint with his right hand raised in blessing and with a book under his left arm, posed in front of the eponymous mission with what appears to be an olive branch peeping over the mission wall. To the lower right of the figure are the word and date 'Founded 1776', and to the left 'Incorporated 1961.' This city is one of the most beautiful cities in the entire US.

San Juan Capistrano might have a flag- there is a news story at that starts "San Juan's Flag Flying in Middle East". "A flag that once flew high over San Juan Capistrano City Hall and the state Capital is now a bittersweet reminder to about 140 marines of the homeland they have left behind."...
I'm not sure if they mean an official municipal flag, or a state or national flag belonging to the city.
