The current flag was adopted in 1996 after the City of Edmond was forced to remove the cross from all copies of the city seal.

The current seal without the cross was adopted unanimously by the city council on May 28, 1996. This was done not in protest, but as "a form of frustration" and as a reminder to the people what was there, then Councilman Gary Moore said.

The former seal was adopted in 1965 after a contest. The seal displays a cross, covered wagon, train and oil well, as well as the Old North Tower of the University of Central Oklahoma.

This seal started its legal case when in 1992, then minister of the Channing Unitarian-Universalist Church Wayne Robinson and the ACLU complained about the cross. In 1993, Norman attorney Micheal Salem filed a suit for Robinson and four other Edmond residents. District Judge David Russell of Oklahoma City ruled in favor of the city that year, however, his decision was overturned by the 10th Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court refused review on May 13, 1996 and then the city was forced to change its seal.

No date of adoption is known, but it dates back to at least 1983 when the mayor of The Village noted the flag of Edmond.
