Milwaukee Flag Project Design Cimpetition – Deadline Extended

The details… Hello,
My name is Steve Kodis and I’m spearheading an effort that intends to redesign Milwaukee’s flag.
Now more than ever I believe Milwaukeeans are yearning for a universal symbol to rally behind and to unite under. A symbol that shows where we’ve come while positioning us for the future. A handsome flag that positions Milwaukee as a design-minded and forward thinking city.
If this strikes a chord with you, please visit our website:
We have begun an open call for entries that runs until December 31, 2015. It’s a free to submit competition and we’re looking for submissions from as many folks in the community as possible.
Thank you.
