The City of Galveston is inviting its residents to vote on the new official city flag.
The city’s Cultural Arts Commission has determined the top 10 proposals for residents to vote on.
When voting, residents are asked to consider the following principals for what constitutes a good flag, according to the City of Galveston:
- 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 or 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.
Voting is opening through Sunday, February 7.
