Meet the 2017 Design-a-Flag Winner
When Elias C. heard about the Town of Firestone’s flag design contest earlier this year, he got right to work studying up on best practices of flag design to position himself for his big win. Eli submitted the winning flag design entry in the Town’s inaugural contest, selected by members of the Town’s Cultural Committee and Board of Trustees, offering this description of his flag:
"The flag I designed for the city of Firestone has many aspects that show the fair city best. The green bar symbolizes prosperity and farmland. The white bar symbolizes the St. Vrain trail. The blue bar symbolizes the St. Vrain river, which is to the north. Finally, the five rising black stars symbolize the five coal mines that gave birth to the town. This is a flag that represents Firestone to its fullest.”
