Pittsburgh flies the Jolly Roger and banners bearing the Steelmark logo year-round and is a city known for taking its colors seriously. Whether on the ice or the field, black and gold flags are ubiquitous. The city’s official flag, however, is rarely seen.
Take a walk through downtown or the North Shore and it seems everything, from Pirates caps to government buildings to Heinz Field, radiates black and gold. The colors are synonymous with Pittsburgh sports and culture.
