The NAVA image at and shown in The American City Flag Survey and American City Flags is essentially identical to that shown above (by CyberFlag), but the sky in our image is B+ instead of P+, and the trees are B++, not V: who’s right? These color differences are also in, at the city official website. I understand that these differing colors come also from &, also from the city website, but the first and largest image is more "authoritative", and its colors are more realistic. An actual flag photo at is not detailed enough.

The city's first flag was made in 1969. It consists of a dark blue field with the then-current city seal (which had been in use for more than 100 years) in the center. That seal also has an outer ring, but the edges of that ring are shown as beveled, in gold. In block gold letters curved and centered over the top of the ring is CITY OF LANSING, and below, MICHIGAN. Separating the upper and lower words is a gold star on either side at about 4 and 8 o'clock. The central device shows a brown log cabin with smoke rising from its chimney at the hoist side into a blue sky. In the center is a woodsman, felling a bare brown tree. Behind the tree, on the fly side, is an orange sun on the horizon. The base of the image is green, depicting grass.

It's a bit ambiguous in the written description what the ring colour is - it was probably the field colour of the flag, but might be yellow. I attach a possible arrangement.
