Do you know what City of Orlando’s official flag looks like? If you don’t, city leaders say you are not alone – and that is one of the reasons they are launching a public design competition to engage the community in creating a new flag.

Starting Wednesday, residents are invited to create and submit their idea for a new design of the City of Orlando flag.

Ten designs will be selected as finalists by members of a committee of neighborhood leaders, members of the arts community, history enthusiasts, and a flag design expert.

Those ten designs will be voted on by the public, with the Orlando City Council having the final word.

The deadline for entries is March 22nd.

Information is on the City of Orlando’s website.
