Today at Milwaukee City Hall, Mayor Tom Barrett announced the five finalists in the Greater Together’s People’s Flag of Milwaukee Design Initiative. In addition to the announcement, the top 50 Milwaukee flag designs were on display at City Hall. Over 1,000 flag design submissions were submitted to the initiative. The 5 finalists will go up for an online rating process starting May 14. The winner will be revealed on June 14 at 88Nine Radio Milwaukee studios in Walker’s Point.
The idea for this initiative was sparked by a TED talk by Roman Mars from 2015. What does this mean for the actual flag of Milwaukee? Will the city adopt the finalist’s flag?
