A new flag for Topeka hit a delay Tuesday morning when the city council removed discussing its official adoption from their meeting agenda.
Mayor Michelle De La Isla and the young professionals group Forge spearheaded a call for designs for a new Topeka flag, and out of three final choices the sunflower design won with 4,000 votes in April. The flag requires an official adoption by the council before it will hang on the city hall mast.
De La Isla won’t be at the Tuesday meeting, so the adoption was removed from the agenda, according to city spokeswoman Molly Hadfield. De La Isla wanted to be a part of the discussion at the meeting.
Hadfield said the approval will be rescheduled, but did not have a date on when that would be.
