Thank you to everyone who participated in the flag design contest.
On Wednesday, May 24, 2017, the flag committee held its fourth meeting and selected two flags to further refine the designs and will meet again on Friday, June 9, 2017, to discuss those and the flag design recommendation they will bring forward to the Orlando City Council.
What makes a good flag?
The Final Two
What Makes a Good Flag
Keep it simple: The flag should be so simple that a child can draw it from memory.
Use meaningful symbolism: The flag’s images, colors, or patterns should relate to what it symbolizes.
Use 2-3 basic colors: Limit the number of colors on the flag to three, which contrast well and come from the standard color set.
No lettering or seals: Never use writing of any kind or an organization’s seal.
Be distinctive or be related: Avoid duplicating other flags, but use similarities to show connections.
