 The flag was designed in 1969 by a longtime Portland resident, noted graphic designer R. Douglas Lynch (1913–2009). The version of the flag adopted at that time included, over Lynch's objections, a dark blue canton containing the city seal in yellow and white; in 2002 Lynch and fellow members of the Portland Flag Association persuaded the city council to simplify the design to better reflect his original intent.[citation needed]

The flag's design ranked seventh among the flags of 150 US cities in the North American Vexillological Association's"American City Flag Survey of 2004".[2]
