At http://www.danville.lib.il.us/Pathfinder/tanner.htm is a large black&white partial photo of the city flag of Danville, Illinois. It is white or at least a very light color with the words DANVILLE ILLINOIS on 2 lines at the fly half,
with the city seal set on 5 vertical stripes at the hoist half- the stripes are fly to hoist: 1-a thin medium color, 2- a wide stripe of the field color, 3- a thin stripe of a darker color, 4- another stripe of the field color, about a third or a quarter of the width of the wide stripe, and 5- another stripe of medium color, about the same width as the 4th stripe. A good graphic of the seal can be seen at www.cityofdanville.org/COD/Mayor/city%20seal.jpg but not it is clear that the seal on the flag does not use the full color scheme shown in this image. It must also be noted that the wording around the seal differs between the linked image and the one shown on the flag. And the seal on the flag has the year 1827 in the shield's chief while the other image has a device like a beehive. Also it may be of interest to note that the caption on the photo states the city flag was aboard the space shuttle Atlantis in an orbital mission in November 1994.
