Locals Participate in Reno Flag Design Contest

Posted: Updated:

In celebration of Reno’s 150th birthday this year, the Reno Arts and Culture Commission is looking for new designs for an official municipal flag for the City of Reno.

The Reno Flag Project hosted its second Flag Workshop at The Holland Project on today, hoping to inspire artists to come up with creative designs for the new flag.

The current flag was created back in 1959, so the City of Reno hopes the new design will showcase how much Reno has changed since then. 
Participants in today's workshop experimented with design and even had the opportunity to turn their designs into a sewn fabric flag. Event organizers provided fabric, machines and all the tools. Any designs wishing to enter the Reno Flag Project can be created at the workshop and submitted. 

The competition is open for anyone and everyone. For information on guidelines and design criteria put forth by the Arts and Culture Commission and to submit your design, visit Reno.gov. Entries are due by midnight on Friday, March 2, 2018.

The Reno City Council may or may not officially adopt a flag from the entries. Council is expected to adopt a new flag by April 2018. The current community flag, created in 1959, is unofficial and was never adopted by the City of Reno.

Citizens who have questions or need assistance can contact Berner at 775-326-6333 or bernerm@reno.gov.
