Orlando's not-so-grand old flag to be updated

By Joe Ruble

ORLANDO, Fla. —

The City of Orlando is launching a public design competition to engage the community in creating a new flag. 

"Just like national flags bring entire countries together, City flags can be a source of civic pride and make people feel more connected to their city," according to Mayor Buddy Dyer's office. 

Now through Wednesday, March 22, 2017, anyone can create and submit their idea for a new design of the City of Orlando flag. 

The City’s current flag was adopted by the Orlando City Council on June 2, 1980.

It too, was created through a design competition sponsored by the Orlando Kiwanis Club and the Council of Arts and Sciences.

Ten finalists will be chosen and the winner selected by a public vote on the city's official website.
