Official City Flag

The City of Galveston's Cultural Arts Commission accepted design proposals for a new city flag and has curated the top 10 selections. We're asking residents to vote on the next city flag to help in this process.

Below are the ten top proposals. When making your selection, we ask that you consider these principals for what constitutes a good flag.

1. Keep It Simple. The flag should be so simple that a child can draw it from memory. 

2. Use Meaningful Symbolism. The flag’s images, colors, or patterns should relate to what it symbolizes. 

3. Use 2 or 3 Basic Colors. Limit the number of colors on the flag to three which contrast well and come from the standard color set. 

4. No Lettering or Seals. Never use writing of any kind or an organization’s seal. 

5. Be Distinctive or Be Related. Avoid duplicating other flags, but use similarities to show connections. (source: http://nava.org/good-flag-bad-flag/)

Voting for the official city flag ends on Sunday, February 7 at 11:59 p.m.
