WHY A NEW FLAG?
When one visits such states as Texas, they are familiar with seeing the instantly recognizable flag of the “Lone Star State.” Famous the world over, the flag is flown proudly by its citizens and businesses alike, even outside its borders. The same can be said for the flags of New Mexico, Arizona, Maryland, California, South Carolina and a few others of note.
Then there’s Utah’s flag. When was the last time you saw the flag being flown by a private business or citizen? Surveys have shown that most students and adults cannot name most the elements on the flag. Are Utahn’s proud of their flag?
Unfortunately, Utah’s flag is not a symbol of state pride, unity, or identity, but rather just another one of the many unremarkable state flags in the Union.
But we can change that. Today.
