City of Manhattan asking for design submissions for new city flag


The City of Manhattan announced a public design competition to adopt a new official city flag.

The competition allows people in Manhattan and the surrounding area to submit flag designs themselves. The entries will be judged based on the North American Vexillological Association’s (NAVA) Five Basic Principles of Flag Design.

After the design deadline, the City of Manhattan’s Arts and Humanities Advisory Board will narrow down the choices to one or two. Then, the public can vote on their favorite design.

Voting will take place in May. The new flag would become official in June.

Designs can be submitted until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 29. People can turn in their submissions online or in person at City Hall.

More specific contest rules and a link to submit designs online can be found here.
