City of Cedar Rapids asking residents to submit ideas for the new official city flag
Cedar Rapids, Iowa – Residents of Cedar Rapids are asked to visit city’s website to choose from the four available designs of the new official city flag.
The voting will last till August 31 and the new flag will be unveiled in the downtown Cedar Rapids Public Library on September 18 at 10 a.m.
In 2019, the city started asking residents to submit design ideas, colors, forms and symbols for the new flag.
“We are excited to offer the opportunity for Cedar Rapids residents to help select the new flag design. The flag is a symbol that will represent the community, so it’s important that the community feels a connection to the final design. I hope people will really embrace the new flag and we start to see it all over as a point of pride for the people of Cedar Rapids,” Ashley Vanorny said, Cedar Rapids City Council Member.
This project was put on hold last year due to the pandemic and derecho, but now to goal is to incorporate citizens input and ideas in creating the flag.
