Following a public contest, Al Nichols’ design was adopted in 1989 as the city’s official flag. The flag was intended to communicate the “new spirit” of Durham. The dominant colors of royal blue, red and gold represent courage; action and progress; and high quality in all growth. The seven stars represent the seven sisters of the constellation Taurus, “the Bull”, under which Durham’s birthday, April 26, falls. The stars are also symbolic of the new spirit of Durham in seven areas.
