The non-profit community group "You in Flood City" held a flag contest in
March 2019 and received 38 entries. The flag designed by Jill Skowron-Gontkovic
was adopted by the city on August 14, 2019.
The Facebook post by "You in Flood City" describes the flag.
"The green represents the hills, trails and outdoor recreation of Johnstown. The blue representing the rivers and water recreation. I went with three arches for the 3 major floods, and the 3 rivers: Stonycreek, Conemaugh and the Little Conemaugh Rivers. The arches make up the Stone Bridge, which is a major landmark of Johnstown. The three yellow stars represent iron, coal, and steel, which are central to Johnstown."
