Syracuse Flag Initiative is currently accepting submissions for a new design for the flag of the City of Syracuse through Friday, February 17, 2023.

Many cities in the United States have recently undertaken efforts to redesign their flags, spurred to action by reactions to a 2015 Ted Talk by radio and podcaster producer Roman Mars, which highlighted the poor design quality of many U.S. flags, while also showcasing examples of cities that employ good flag design principles and whose flags are a source of civic pride.

This display provides examples of good flag design among U.S. city flags (as well as some world city flags), both as an interesting topic and as an inspiration to those who are considering submitting a design for the new flag of the City of Syracuse.
