Copenhagen has no official city flag. Sometimes used: a logo-on-a-sheet-like
rag, probably designed by some advertising agency is used.

Peter Orenski wrote, "As passionate vexillologists, once we found out (to our great surprise) that Copenhagen didn't have a city flag, we went to Town Hall and spoke with people in the Archive Dept., Library, and Jan Horskjśr's Information Office, trying to find out:
1. WHY Copenhagen didn't have a flag, and
2. WHAT the various Copenhageners at Town Hall thought an appropriate symbol and flag for the capital might be.
The Archive Dept. and Mr. Horskjśr's office were especially helpful in providing copies of the KÝbenhavns Kommune's beautiful arms, both the original design and its modern stylized version. After several discussions with Town Hall employees, they agreed that the attached design would be an appropriate city flag. As you see, the proposed flag mirrors the national flag in its dimensions, colors, and hoist-displaced charge -- Bishop Absalon's famous 1167 'Castle at Havn.'

A flag like this has already been seen as a centered logo-on-a-bedsheet
printed both blue on white and white on blue flying at the cruise liner quay
Langeline as much as 10 years ago, possibly the responsibility of parks
department or a public relations firm.

The Football Club KÝbenhavn (F.C. Copenhagen) FCK flag can be seen flying on
this image, and logo better seen on

The flag is nearly square and shows the club's logo on white. The logo
includes the Dannebrog and a blue stylized lion's head, with blue sans serif
capitals "F.C. KÝbenhavn" closing on a circular area.
