Elk Ridge City in­vites artists to en­ter city’s flag con­test

Serve Daily - - FOSTERING INNOVATION - By Dallin Milling­ton

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 site elkridgecityflag­con­test.org or visit the Elk Ridge city of­fice build­ing.
