Proposal made to look at designing a new flag for the city of Nashville, TN.

Information from Wikipedia on the current flag.

It's about doggone time. 

 

If it turns out looking like anything other than a Gibson ad, I'll be very impressed.

3 does look like that Twitter account that mixes flags together mixed the 2005 Utah Jazz and Turkey.

 

I think the first one with the negative space E is clever.

You’re neglecting the true Québécois flag.

The Patriote Flag!

 

Unfortunately this has been co-opted by certain...unsavoury types, which is a shame. I've always loved it but I'm thankful I do not own one.

With Juneteenth on the verge of being recognized as a federal holiday, there's a lot of focus on the Juneteenth flag.  And I love it.

The idea came from a Boston activist, and the design from illustrator Lisa Graf.  She describes the symbolism this way:

 

Quote

"The Juneteenth flags represent the history, and freedom the American Slaves and their descendants. The design of the Juneteenth flag depicts a bursting "new star", on the horizon. The star represents A NEW FREEDOM, A NEW PEOPLE, A NEW STAR. The red, white, and blue colors communicate that the American Slaves, and their descendants were all Americans."

 

A couple years later, somebody added the date as an alternate version.  Major, major downgrade.

And now, like with many public domain designs, there are a bunch of unofficial versions.

Shame.  They haven't improved upon the original.

Yep.  That's about the size of it.

 

I understand the need to educate white Americans about a holiday that has largely gone unacknowledged until recently.  But spread awareness of the holiday itself, and you don't need to label the flag.
