Description of the Flag

Modeled on the state flag is that of Miami-Dade County (formerly simply Dade County). Note the saltire is of two colors: despite the poor lighting of the image (the sun was not out), the "bend dexter" limb of the saltire is green, not blue. The "bend sinister" limb is a lighter green. Nice effect, actually.

Historical flag of Dade County

According to a video posted by the Wolfson Archives, the original flag of Miami-Dade County (then known simply as Dade County) was adopted in 1951 or 1952. It consisted of a blue field with the pre-1957 seal emblazoned in the middle. This flag would later be relinquished following the installment of a Metropolitan Government within Dade County in 1957, which later adopted a new flag similar to the current one sometime afterwards.
