SLC Flag Design Opportunity


May 1, 2020

Dear Student,

Salt Lake City is looking for a new flag to represent our wonderful city and its people, and I think you would be the perfect flag designer. Let me rephrase that, I think you would be the perfect vexillographer -- the fancy name for a person who designs flags.

Young people have the inherent quality of seeing the world -- and our city -- differently, which is just what we need to create a flag that truly represents Salt Lake City. I find your creativity and outside-the-box thinking refreshing and I hope you’ll spend some time to create and submit a flag design. It’s entirely possible that by the end of 2020, it could be flying high from atop flagpole in front of City Hall.

Visit for design and submission criteria.

Oh, and did I mention that the creator of the winning design will be awarded $3,000? If someone is going to win it, it might as well be you.

Take care. I’m so looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Erin Mendenhall,
Salt Lake City Mayor
