The Mayor’s Office of Trade and International Affairs (MOTIA) takes pride in celebrating the international community of Houston. Our city has one of most diverse populations in the world, with one in four residents born abroad and more than 100 languages spoken within its borders. As Houston’s global presence and influence grows, so do Houston’s international events. MOTIA serves as the City’s international liaison and offers the opportunity to rent flags for these events and special occasions. MOTIA has flags for all nations represented in the Houston's consular corps and most countries represented in the Summer Olympic Games. When planning an international event, MOTIA can assist you in renting international flags and explaining how to properly display the flags.
