Finalists announced for new Minnesota State Flag

Six finalists selected for new Minnesota State Flag

After over six hours of deliberations, six finalists were selected for both the new Minnesota state flag and seal on Tuesday.

Minnesotans were told to submit their designs for the new Minnesota State Flag. Thousands of designs were entered into the competition and now six finalists have been picked.

The state’s Emblems Redesign Commission worked for more than six hours Wednesday to narrow it down. The Commission could still adjust some of the designs to change things like the shades of the colors. They also chose five options for the new state seal.

There will be a final vote in about two weeks and then the commission will pass those choices along to the State Legislature for final approval.

To check out the finalists for both the state flag design and the new state seal design, head to the State Emblems Redesign Committee’s Website. For more information on how submissions were entered, head to this story.
