The History of Detroit's Flag
The flag of the city of Detroit was designed in 1907 by David E. Heineman and was officially adopted as the city's flag in 1948. Each section represents a country that once controlled Detroit ? France, England & the United States.

The two Latin mottos read speramus meliora and resurget cineribus, meaning "we hope for better things" and "it will rise from the ashes," which was written by Gabriel Richard following the fire that destroyed the city in 1805.
