ORLANDO, Fla. - The City of Orlando is in the process of redesigning the city's official flag and they're seeking assistance from citizens.
The public design competition is open to anyone through March 22. Anyone can submit their idea for a new design.
The current design of the flag has been used since 1980. It was originally designed through a similar competition.
For Orlando's new flag, the city is seeking a design that follows five principles outlined by the North American Vexillogical Association, an organization devoted to the scientific and scholarly study of flags.
The principles include:
1. Keep it simple.
2. Use meaningful symbolism.
3. Use two to three basic colors.
4. No lettering or seals.
5. Be distinctive or be related.
At the close of the competition, a Flag Design Committee will select ten designs to be voted on by the public.
