Madison’s flag, designed by two members of the Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps, Dennis and Richard Stone, was officially adopted by the City
as it’s “colors” on April 12, 1962 under resolution No. 4408.
The two blue segments bisected diagonally by the white band represent Lakes Mendota and Monona separated by the isthmus. Superimposed on this
background is a Black Cross, typifying the State Capital and also the Four Lakes. Overlaid on this Black Cross is the Indian Sun symbol in gold.
