Columbia seeks comment on city flag design finalists
COLUMBIA - The Columbia Office of Cultural Affairs announced Tuesday it is seeking public comment on the three finalists in the city's flag design contest.
The city received 84 design entries by the application deadline of November 2014. In September 2015, the city council reviewed the finalists and chose its top three designs.
The public comment period will last through January 2016. After the comment period ends, the city council will evaluate resident feedback and make a final recommendation for the new flag at a future council meeting.
Here are the design proposals the city will consider:
Design #1 (Jon Sheltmire):
Design #2 (Michael Bauer):
Design #3 (Nicole Johnston):
Residents can learn more about each design and leave their thoughts by visiting the city's website.
