City 'Flag Challenge' extended to Dec. 31

November 14, 2014

Dan Toland, city of River Falls mayor, introduced the River Falls Flag Challenge starting on Sept. 15.

A city flag will help to show the pride that we have for our community and can become a symbol for the city. This is a chance for citizens of all ages to be creative and help design the new city flag.

The challenge will now go through Wednesday, Dec. 31. The city has received many great entries and is extending the deadline in order to ensure that everyone in the community has a chance to enter their flag design and be a part of River Falls' history. The flag must display the name of the city and the date that the city of River Falls was incorporated which is 1885.

The design should also be no more than five colors. Designs along with a signed entry agreement form can be dropped off at City Hall or emailed to Starting in early 2015 the top five designs will be displayed at City Hall, the Public Library and on the city's website. Citizens will then have a chance to vote on their favorite design.

The winning design will receive a $200 cash prize from the River Falls Community Arts Base.
