From a press release:

Today, St. Louis Mayor Francis G. Slay and District of Columbia Mayor Vincent C. Gray announced that they had placed a friendly wager on the outcome of the National League Division Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Washington Nationals.

The Mayors have agreed that, if the Nationals win the series, a special version of the D.C. flag emblazoned with the District’s “Taxation Without Representation” motto will fly over City Hall in downtown St. Louis for a day. Conversely, if the Cardinals take the series, St. Louis’ “three rivers” flag will fly over the District’s John A. Wilson Building (the seat of the Executive Office of the Mayor and the D.C. Council) for a day.
