Town of Harrisburg Flag Contest

For the first time in the Town’s history, Harrisburg will soon have a flag to serve as a unique icon that represents its people and culture.

Fourteen-year-old Jonathan Andrus proposed the idea of holding a contest to create a Town flag during the public comment section of the March 12, 2018 Town Council meeting. During his comments, Andrus said he has gotten more than four dozen of his peers’ signatures to support having a Town flag.

Town Manager Haynes Brigman announced details of the contest at the Town Council meeting on April 9 and residents may begin submitting their designs. The Town will accept submissions until June 1, 2018. Submitted designs will be reviewed by Town staff, Council members and Andrus. After three rounds of narrowing down submitted designs, residents will be able to vote on the final three designs. The flag with the most votes will become the official Town of Harrisburg flag.

The winning flag design will be sent to a flag shop for production and will be displayed at Town Hall.
