The City of Coral Springs has opened up a contest to update their flag and your creative submission could be used as the new representative design.
The current flag has the city seal with green and blue diagonal stripes on a solid white background. The small graphic details are not clearly visible or recognizable from a distance, and they are looking for a look that will.
Anyone who lives, works or attends school in Coral Springs can submit their flag designs online. Entries will be accepted in three divisions. The entry deadline is March 17, 2017. A committee will narrow down the field to the top flag designs, and the public will also have a chance to vote on their favorite. The City Commission will approve the final design.
All submissions will later be on display at the Museum of Art. The city commission will select the winning flag and recognize the winner, finalists and students at a future commission meeting.
