The second was a 5-striped flag with the map on it, or so it appears, from the 1940s-70s. The colors are not known. Purcell (American City Flags) does not mention it and there seems to be some mystery about it.

The first flag of Tulsa apparently was a "rising sun" look-alike (with blue rays; gyronny, sort of) from the 1920s to the 40s (Purcell 2003: American City Flags has this one).
