OGDEN, Utah — Ogden City announced it would accept submissions for a new flag design. The person with the winning design will receive a $1000 cash prize. Submissions are due July 15.
The city said it wanted to celebrate the “history, culture, and community” of Ogden with the new flag.
“We’re excited to see the community’s ideas for a new flag,” Council Chair Ben Nadolski said. “It will be a symbol that represents Ogden for years to come. The significance of this project is big, and we hope people will recognize that and participate.”
The city said there are no eligibility requirements for the contest. Submissions are open to everyone, not just Ogden residents.
There are rules for design submissions though:
- Submissions must be in 3×5 proportions and a jpg, png, or pdf file.
- Designs should not be plagiarized.
- Submissions need to include the participant’s name, contact information, and a summary of the symbolism used in the design.
- Participants can submit up to three designs.
The city said designs should be simple, have meaningful symbolism, relate to Ogden, and use no more than three basic colors. The city also advised that designs should stand out and be iconic.
The Ogden City Flag Design Selection Committee will look through submitted designs to choose three finalists. Finalists’ designs will be shown to the Ogden City Council, which will then choose the winner.
The new flag is expected to be chosen in the fall.
The official entry form can be found on the city’s website.
