Final Day to Submit Design for Pocatello Flag is Dec. 2

Pocatello Flag

Amateur and professional vexillologists are running out of time to get their design in for consideration as Pocatello’s new flag.


After Friday, December 2, the Flag Design Ad-hoc Committee will no longer be accepting submissions for the City’s redesign effort. So far, more than 300 entries have been sent in from over a dozen countries.


“It’s amazing to see how far this redesign effort has reached,” said Logan McDougall, Chair of the Flag Design Ad-hoc Committee. “We’ve received entries from Ukraine, Canada, Chile, and Australia to name a few. Around the globe, people are talking about our community and learning about the area we call home.”


Once the final entries are in, they’ll be passed on to a panel that will help bring the best back to the public for their input.


“The final make-up of the judging panel is still in the works but we’ve reached out to experts in vexillology, art, design, advertising, and history,” McDougall said.


In 2015, Pocatello was highlighted in a TED Talk by journalist Roman Mars as having the “worst flag in North America” as chosen by the members of the North American Vexillological Association.
