Local residents got their first look at a newly-designed flag for the city of Naperville.
Six Naperville high school students took it upon themselves to create a group called “Campaign for a Better Flag” and built a website, napervilleflag.org, where city residents could submit concepts for a new city flag.
After 128 submissions, a committee, including flag experts, narrowed them down to just five. Those five were then voted on by Naperille residents, and the students revealed the winner of that contest at tonight’s TedX talk at Christian Community Church.
They even gave out some flags for free and are hoping business and residents adopt the flag as an unofficial symbol of the city. The logo is not copy-written so it’s free for all to use. The city has not said whether they will adopt this flag as the new, official city flag.
The students loved the winner, explaining the symbols to a packed auditorium. The two white horizontal lines for example represent Naperville’s two counties, Will and DuPage, and the six stars stand for each of the city’s townships.
