The flag

"The flag is described in the Carbondale City Code as follows:

B. City Flag: The City flag shall consist of the Corporate Seal in gold, black and white on a white background. (Ord. 1663 § 1)

The description of the City's Corporate Seal is as follows:
The Carbondale City Council adopted the official Seal on October 12, 1971. The Seal was designed by James W. McKinney of Carbondale and depicts the lamp of learning signifying the special significance of education to this community, a railroad spike and railroad tracks symbolic of the importance of the railroad in Carbondale's history, and a cross commemorating one of the first observances of Memorial Day in the United States which was held in the City of Carbondale. All of these are ringed by cotton boles and tinged in black to indicate the place of cotton and coal in Southern Illinois."
