Thoughts passed through my head like: This design is striking. Do these colors mean Milwaukee to me? What was this person thinking? How is this related to the city? I never would have picked these colors, but it's bold, so I think I like it. This one is bold but it misses the mark. I wonder if the final five can be as good as this one.
The finalists, chosen from among more than 1,000 entries, were unveiled during a Saturday evening ceremony at City Hall. The winner will be announced on June 14, which is Flag Day.
Today at Milwaukee City Hall, Mayor Tom Barrett announced the five finalists in the Greater Together’s People’s Flag of Milwaukee Design Initiative.
