I got a quote on printing a 3'x5' of this and it's pretty tempting to hang in out in lieu of my "real" Montana flag for a while. $110 for a one-off isn't too bad.

 

I'd check Ali Express; you can get very inexpensive flags there.

Now that's a flag an Earthican can fly proudly.

Meridian, Mississippi's flag is terrible

That's like five flags in one.

Apparently now Columbia SC wants in on the fun, too.

 

Quick look at the current....

...And the 19 finalists.

Quick hits from the link:

 

- The three lines Columbia's three rivers.

 

- The single star represents Cola being the state capitol.

 

- The six stars represent the six colleges in the city.

I like the 2nd and 18th ones.

 

None of 'em are bad, those are just the most unique, imo.

I personally like the 16th flag. The red & blue intertwining & the single star on a white backround looks sharp.

Milwaukee may have a new flag!

My favourite is the first. The 16th looks way to similar to the redesigned flag of Kentucky (shown below) by Bressler in their United We Stand project.595bebd920c56_UnitedWeStandKentucky.png.c3ade1bc0738ed9a0640b1805ce995a2.png

I like the idea behind that United We Stand project, but it completely fails on one of those "official" rules. 45 out of the 51 flags have a 5-point star, and they're all crammed into the RWB color scheme. That's not exactly distinctive.

Its been over a year since the People's Flag was introduced - have you heard anything about the city itself taking steps to make it official?

I love the second one on the top row.  Something about it just screams South Carolina.  Too many of these are way too similar to existing designs or projects.  The aforementioned Kentucky concept, the one on the bottom is identical to the old Trust Territory of the Pacific 125px-Flag_of_the_Trust_Territory_of_the, the third one of the third row reminds me of the failed Iraqi flag 220px-Proposed_flag_of_Iraq_%28Coalition, one of them reminds me of St. Louis 300px-Flag_of_St._Louis%2C_Missouri.svg.

That is very true. It was a noble attempt at unifying the state flags and while I prefer most of them to their current versions it was a bit of a flop.

Not that I've heard of, which is a real shame considering the current flag.

I saw one for Tampa, which would be an instant upgrade.

Would you be able to find an image of it. I'm interested.

theres a couple of nice options for Columbia there. my favorite probably being the first, i think those colors are really strong and it uses good icons; the star (for being the capital city) and crescent moon. 

 

i would automatically eliminate anything that uses 6 stars for the city colleges. i dont think thats a very strong concept and its something that could possibly change over time, then the design has to change

I've gotten a couple of batches from an Etsy user someone suggested, and I've been quite pleased with the price, the quality, and the turnaround time.
