The City of Duluth is looking for help with creating a new symbol for the city. The Duluth Flag Project is a community design initiative to create a recognizable and inclusive flag for Duluth. According to a press release, city officials and a volunteer Flag Committee chosen nine finalists from the 195 entries.

The Flag Committee is made up of community members that represent diverse fields and
backgrounds.
 “It is very exciting to have narrowed the field to nine finalists for Duluth’s next flag,” Adam Fulton, Deputy Director of Planning
and Economic Development said in a press release. “We were pleased with the number of entries that we received, and look forward to the public voting 
because ultimately, a city flag can become a unifying symbol and rallying point for a community.”

Designs were submitted by 98 artists from ten states and three countries, and were between the ages of five and 70.

The Flag Committee used information from a flag survey, artist's description and overall sense that the flag would represent Duluth in chosing the nine finalists. Now it is the publics turn.

Vote for your favorite flag design at http://bit.ly/2WTbCXN or visit the in-person voting stations at the Duluth Public Libraries until June 21. 

The new City flag will be introduced in July.
