I like the idea of having school children design a city flag. Their imaginations are not hindered by any preconceived notions that limit the scope of the design.
Now a group in Brighton and Hove, UK are putting such a plan into action, calling on the school children to make recommendations for a city flag. The winning entry will be chosen on May 4th and made into a full-size flag by May 6th for flying at the annual Children’s Parade.
Brighton and Hove is to get its own flag, designed by one of the city’s children. The 2020 Community Partnership, in association with The Argus, is calling on the city’s schoolchildren to come up with flags based on their vision for the city’s future.
