The City’s newly launched flag redesign contest has moved on to its second phase. The Flag Design Committee has selected their favorite designs from all of the submitted options. The public will now rank them, via votes. The Committee will then make a decision, based on the amount of votes that each flag receives.

Orlandoans have until April 17, 2017, at midnight, to vote on their favorite flag. You can vote once per day.

  1. The original flag was so much better than any of these submissions. I don’t see why we should change it. I was born and raised in Orlando and none of these are good enough to represent our city. If this is the best we have we sjould keep the orignal flag.

  2. All are awful. None show the character of the City Beautiful. They are sterile. They all appear to be drawn by only one or two individuals. I cannot vote for any of them. Go back to the drawing board,

  3. The city is just doing this to appease the masses because they’ve modified at least some of the designs for the final round of voting. What’s the point of requesting citizen submissions if they’re only going to steal people’s designs and change them and their descriptions to suit their needs? Also, three fountain designs? Really? THAT’S the most appropriate representation of this city? Lame. Vote for the swan (although the original design was better).

  4. While I appreciate all these efforts, I like the current flag far better than any of the new submissions. Why are we changing the flag?

  5. The first link “click here for more information” took me directly to a particular design’s page with my vote recorded for that design (swan). Not sure if the link is bad or it’s a problem on the cities site but you should look into it.
