Salt Lake City Flag Design Submissions Now Open!

07 May 2020 Published in News & Events

Calling all Artists and Creatives!

Salt Lake City is accepting submissions for a new Salt Lake City flag design (and offering a cash prize)! If you ask us, it's high time that our beautiful city's namesake, Great Salt Lake, be incorporated into the design!

Submissions will be accepted through June 30, 2020.


Here's a quote from Mayor Erin Mendenhall’s call to action:

"Now, in the midst of significant changes to the way we live and how our community functions, one thing has remained steadfast – the character, ingenuity and perseverance of our city and its people.

Salt Lake City deserves a flag that is emblematic of what we are, and who we are. It deserves a flag we’re proud to see whether it’s waving atop City Hall or outside our very own homes and businesses."

Why We Care

  • We should bill the lake for what it is—a place of grandeur and solitude, which nourishes our thoughts and heightens our sensitivity to nature. Seen in that light, the brine flies become a fascinating curiosity more than an annoyance. The Great Salt Lake offers a wilderness experience, not a beach party, and no amount of promotion and development will change that.
