The Pittsburgh City flag epitomizes the city's spirit of unity and industry. The Pittsburgh flag is a tricolor flag that contains vertical bands of black and gold centered with the Pittsburgh Coat of Arms. The flag is based on the Coat of Arms of William Pitt, the first Earl of Chatham and the city's namesake. The shield displays a fortress which symbolizes the city of Pittsburgh as protector. The Pittsburgh seal displays a phrase which translates to "By the Favor of Heaven". In tribute to its flag, all three of Pittsburgh's professional sports teams the Steelers (NFL), Pirates (MLB), and Penguins (NHL) wear black and gold.
