The City of Orlando has announced it’s launching a public competition to design a new flag for the “City Beautiful” to replace the existing design that has been around for over 37 years.
“Just like national flags bring entire countries together, City flags are a source of civic pride that help to unify residents and make people feel more connected to their city.” says the announcement.
The city is seeking a strong design as outlined by the North American Vexillological Association, an organization devoted to the scientific and scholarly study of flags. The principles in the design should include a simple concept that uses two to three colors with no lettering or seals that makes a distinct impression.
Ten designs will be selected as finalists by members of a Flag Design Committee, comprised of neighborhood leaders, members of the arts and design community, history enthusiasts and a “flag design expert”.
Those 10 designs will be voted on by the public, through the City’s website and at City Hall. Those results will go to the Flag Design Committee, who will ultimately determine the proposed flag design based on ranking to present to the Orlando City Council for a final vote and selection.
