A selection of our designer's favorite designs. If the current proposed flag is not met with approval, many of these designs would make for a strong alternative option while still preserving many of the proposed symbolic elements. We've also included amongst these designs the current state flag for quick comparison.
From the very origins of the project, we knew that any new flag design for Utah had to have a prominent Beehive. Like the "Lone Star" of the Texas flag, or the "Golden Bear" of California, there are some places in our country that are defined by a symbol. Utah, with its Beehive, is one of them.
Thus, you'll notice that all our designs feature the Beehive in some shape or form.
In regards to our favorites, they essentially come down to personal taste. While most tell a story in some form or another, some of what we considered to be the best designs were also the simplest that didn't do more than declare that the flag belonged to Utah, aka "The Beehive State."
