Public Voting Round Now Open
FREDERICK, MD- Three semi-finalists have been selected for the 275th Anniversary County flag re-design contest. The three designs will now move forward to a public voting round beginning today, Friday, May 5, and ending Saturday, June 10, at 10 p.m., with the conclusion of the 275th Jubilee event.
The winner by highest vote will be announced on Flag Day, June 14, by County Executive Jessica Fitzwater via a media release.
The three designs, titles and narratives are available to view online at FrederickCountyMD.gov/275FlagContest. Voters may choose between the three new design options or the current county flag design, which was created as part of a similar contest held during the County’s celebration of the Bicentennial.
To participate, you must currently live or work in Frederick County. One vote is permitted per person for the duration of the contest.
The three semi-final designs were selected by the County Flag Contest Selection Committee. The Committee reviewed 137 designs in total. The designs were evaluated based on three criteria: simplicity; color scheme; and narrative.
