Support a new flag for the city of Milwaukee

This petition had 10 supporters

For years Milwaukee has been known for a few notable things- beer, industry, and our beautiful lake. But today, we know Milwaukee has grown so much more beyond that.

Milwaukee is a fast growing city that is innovative and leading in many fields. The city of Milwaukee deserves a flag that is reflective of this; A flag that is embraced by the community and symbolizes not only what this place is, but also what it can be.

Our goal is to give Milwaukee a beautiful flag that residents can be proud of and that reflects what the city is today.

A few traits have long established Milwaukee as the city it is- our great lake and cream city brick. Not only is the lake a strong geographical feature, but it continues to serve as a source of cutting edge research in the city. And cream city brick can be found in many beautiful old buildings, a distinct architectural feature for Milwaukee. Today we are also moving forward in many aspects of sustainability, notably as leaders in urban farming. The colors we have chosen represent each of these strong characteristics. 

Unlike the current flag, we have chosen not to limit our city to icons.

The triangular shapes represent movement and growth, which is a constant for the city. The stripes give reference to water as well as agriculture, something that relates us to our state as well. As we continue to grow and innovate, we come together as a community, represented by the intersecting point in the flag.

Let's give Milwaukee the flag it deserves!
