We are looking for a fresh, original design for a new flag that captures the unique spirit and beauty of Pacific Palisades, California. Our panel of distinguished judges will use their combined subjective judgment to select the ideal flag design, which will include the following criteria: A clean, contemporary but timeless design; representation of Pacific Palisades in the choice of colors and other elements; simplicity, honesty, and emotion;a flag that Palisadians would want to proudly wave. You may go online or to the library to study different flags, but all submissions should be your own original artwork and not copied or stolen or featuring clipart. You also may want to read the “good flag, bad flag” tips from the flag experts at North American Vexillological Association (NAVA): Judges may or may not agree with all of these tips from NAVA, so you don’t need to necessarily follow them, but they are worth considering as
you design your flag.
