Official City of Millbrae Flag Design Contest

Post Date:11/19/2019 3:24 PM

Did you know Millbrae does not have an official city flag? Would you like to design it?

The Official City of Millbrae Flag Design Contest is now open to all Millbrae residents. The flag size must be three feet by five feet (3’ x 5’), include at least two colors, and feature elements that represent the heart and soul of Millbrae.

Here are some suggestions when designing the flag:

1) Keep It Simple: The flag should be so simple that a child can draw it from memory.

2) Use Meaningful Symbolism:  The flag’s images, colors, or patterns should relate to what it symbolizes.

3) Use 2 or 3 Basic Colors:  Limit the number of colors on the flag to three which contrast well and come from the standard color set.

4) Be Distinctive or Be Related:  Avoid duplicating other flags but use similarities to show connections.

Local community members can submit their flag designs to Designs must be submitted by Sunday, December 15, 2019, to be considered. For more information, please call (650) 259-2419.
