We’re making progressing on a new flag for Anaheim.
A group of 19 community submissions are currently under consideration as we work toward a final design our city can be proud of.
From March 19 to April 20, we received 113 submissions from residents and those who work here. Great job Anaheim!
The submissions include everything from hand drawings to professional-quality digital designs.
The city’s Communications team has picked 15 individual and group submissions (for a total of 19) as a representative sample of the total entries received.
These first-round finalists follow the good-flag design guidelines outlined on Anaheim.net/flag. A few flags with lettering, the city seal or corporate images were eliminated early on.
On June 5, Anaheim’s flag subcommittee made up of Mayor Tom Tait and Council Members Denise Barnes and Stephen Faessel met to review our selection of first-round finalists.
The subcommittee is set to meet again in late June to try and narrow the group down to one to three finalist flags.
A single flag or small group of finalists would then be forwarded for consideration by the full City Council in coming weeks.
You can see a slideshow of the flags under consideration by the subcommittee here.
Thanks to all for your help designing our next flag and stay tuned.
