A blue flag with the city seal on a gold disk centered.

On this variant, the seal is centered, but the city name is written above in gold, and the motto RESURGAM below.

Yet another variant of the City of Portland Maine Flag has surfaced. On 2 Feb 2011 the Portland Press Herald ran a story about the great blizzard. As a part of the story there was a picture of three flags flying in the storm with someone
cross-country skiing below. The flags (U.S., Maine and City of Portland) are flying and the Portland flag is royal blue with the city seal in the center minus the encircling inscriptions (but with what I think is a dark blue ring) and the inscriptions "City of Portland, Maine" arched over the top in all-caps gold and "Resurgam Resurgam" arched below also in all-caps gold. Much like the 1998 image (above), except a lighter blue, a narrow dark blue ring edging the seal, the design on the seal in a lighter blue except the water is dark blue and light blue instead of white and dark blue, and the bottom inscription repeats the City motto.
