Description of the flag

Paducah's flag is vertical red-white-red (1:2:1) with an Indian head in a circle of stars on the white stripe.
Dov Gutterman, 2 November 2002

The Indian head most likely represents Chickasaw Chief Paduke who sold the land for the site of Paducah to Andrew Jackson in 1818. The land was reportedly Chief Paduke's favorite hunting ground. The land was originally granted to General George Rogers Clark and later the city of Paducah was laid out by General William Clark in 1827.
