The City of Detroit is currently in a state of renovation, and for all its great effort to resurrect from a troubled past, it deserves a symbol of rebirth just as new as the ash it is gradually rising from. Detroit is in need of a new flag. Its current flag is outdated, irrelevant, and it doesn’t follow basic principles of good flag design. The design is too complex, it uses too many colors, and the city seal shouldn’t be on it. This redesign is a response to these issues and also to the citizens who don’t even know their city has a flag. This project aims to encourage the people of Detroit to embrace, fly, and finally adopt the new flag, the Detroit Rise. Doing so will reassert the city’s image and set the city up for an even greater future.

As a Detroit native who has received a robust Detroit upbringing, education, and passion for contributing to the city so that its status is ever elevated, I strongly believe Detroit needs a new flag. We are so prideful and serious about the vitality of our city. Why don't we show that pride and resilience through our flag? Why can't we show that energy through a new flag that is more relevant to, not only our history, but to us now, and to our future?

I don't want to be the only citizen voicing this concern. I encourage all to study and consider this vision and see the bigger picture that Detroit will certainly pose in. From what I know so far, the Detroit City Council and related governing bodies can at least sponsor this change.

Whether fulfilled or failed, I will still remain proud and happy in flying the new flag with any and all supporting neighbors.
