The seal used for the flag of Flagstaff is similar to the city seal but
differs in typeface, color, and imagery. It does include a flagstaff/flag pole!
Photograph from the Arizona Daily Sun show most of it: https://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/azdailysun.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/4/ce/4ce883e0-4acb-5a37-a13a-5c3a143e95d9/5e5d5b13c2041.image.jpg
The flag atop the seal can be seen in this photograph from the Northern Arizona University student newspaper The Lumberjack: https://bloximages.newyork1.vip.townnews.com/jackcentral.org/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/2/e6/2e67aa53-de5b-51df-b724-8ede94304da4/5d82aa2f13fa2.image.jpg

The website at www.flagstaff.az.gov shows a circular seal; in the center of the white outer ring are the words 'CITY OF FLAGSTAFF' in black capitals. Separated from this by the flagstaff which gives the city its name (q.v.) is the word 'ARIZONA' written in a similar fashion. At the lower right and lower left respectively of this outer ring are two small black dots, while at the very bottom of this ring is the alphanumeric 'ESTABLISHED 1882', in the same format as the words at the top of the outer circle. The most distinguishing feature of the seal is the very tall flagstaff, based on a cliff to the right foreground of the seal and extending some distance outside the seal itself; flying from the peak is a U.S. flag blowing to the left. To the left of the staff is an elk facing front. The principal design of the center of the seal, which is multicolored, is a pale blue sky with white clouds, located at the top. Beneath the sky is a range of mountains in the background, in a very dark shade of green. A field in pale blue (snow-covered?) is in the center foreground, with a rail fence curving toward the mountains. In the lower foreground is a river with rocks.
