City Flags ///

Oakland city flag design | Gregory West

I love listening to podcasts, and can’t imagine how (back in those dark, pre-pod days) I managed to get through long drives and general errand running without them. One of my favourite sources is Slate, including The Gist with host Mike Pesca. A recent episode covered the topic of US city flags, which made me realize that I didn’t even know that most cities have their own flag. I took a quick look around and found that some of the designs are amazing. They could easily shirk their municipal duties and grace the side of a surfboard. My favourites are Oakland, Ocean City, and Des Moines.
