One of the essential ingredients to any strong flag design is its ability to tell a story. There are seven strong storytelling attributes for our proposed flag, each symbolizing or representing a unique feature of Utah and its remarkable history.
It is important to remember that a flag doesn't need to "say it" to "be it." For example, the Beehive represents "Industry" but doesn't need to actually write it out, thus cluttering the design, to represent it. The same goes for the star representing Utah's statehood, which doesn't need to read "1896" within, also cluttering the design, to actually represent the date, and so forth.
