I believe a good flag has the ability to unite the city that works under it, and personify the people that live in the city it represents.
Years ago a new city flag made its way up the flagpole at City Hall, but the design was never completely embraced by our residents.
Now, in the midst of significant changes to the way we live and how our community functions, one thing has remained steadfast – the character, ingenuity and perseverance of our city and its people.
Salt Lake City deserves a flag that is emblematic of what we are, and who we are. It deserves a flag we’re proud to see whether it’s waving atop City Hall or outside our very own homes and businesses.
Today, Salt Lake City is looking for its next flag – one that represents all of us.
I look forward to seeing the creativity that comes our way and raising a new flag with you this fall.
