The City of Yorba Linda would like to thank everyone who participated in the City flag design contest. After receiving many great submissions, a winning design was officially adopted by the City Council on May 18, 2021. The adopted flag was designed by Yorba Linda resident Michelle Pohl. The flag is composed of two gentle sweeping lines, depicting the rolling hills of Yorba Linda, the literal foundation upon which Yorba Linda thrives. A star adorns the upper left corner, or west side of the flag, as a symbol of the westerly location of the treasured Richard Nixon Birthplace and Museum. The color yellow represents “Gracious Living” and friendship; the color blue represents the intelligence stemming from Yorba Linda's high achieving, award-winning schools; and the color white represents peacefulness, a trait rooted in the City’s pastoral, equestrian beginnings.
