Elk Ridge City wants to join the ranks of cities with great flags. Every great city deserves a great flag! So, every city in Utah County has a great flag, right? Not quite. Several cities in the county have flags, but they may not be known by residents. Maybe they are not flown and not known because the designs are poor. Maybe some of the other cities in the county without flags have never thought that a “great” design could give positive vibes to residents and visitors. Maybe those flagless cities have been waiting to understand the five principles of good flag design to help them find one they love.
We know country flags, and we know some state flags, and some of them really rock! A flag is worth some envy when it sticks out and you recognize it: Arizona, New Mexico, Maryland, Texas, Alaska. Municipal flag designs can join that club. There is no shortage of designs, and every city can discover a great one that will make its residents rave. Elk Ridge is going to do just that. And you can help!
Elk Ridge is staging a city flag design contest beginning March 1 and continuing to April 15. For more information, visit the Elk Ridge city office building.
