Greater Together, AIGA Wisconsin and the Milwaukee Flag Initiative invite you to join us for the announcement of the new People's Flag of Milwaukee.
Please RSVP by reserving your free tickets below.
The time has come to create a flag that truly represents us. Greater Together and the Milwaukee Flag Initiative joined together to engage in a broad and inclusive process to create a new flag for the city we love. A flag that represents our heritage and our aspirations.
Professional designers and facilitators engaged hundreds of students in workshops across the city. Months of social media communications invited amateurs and professionals alike to enter their flag designs. The result was over 1,000 stunning entries into the Greater Together People's Flag of Milwaukee Design Initiative. 5 expert judges gathered on April 23, 2016 and narrowed down 1,006 entries to 45 semifinalists and 5 finalists. Following the announcement of 5 finalists at the City Hall on May 14th, Milwaukeeans rated each of the 5 finalists to determine the highest rated entry.
Please, join us in celebration of our city's new beautiful symbol.
Refreshments will be provided. Milwaukee-based soul harmony group Brothers By Choice will be performing as well!
