GALVESTON, Texas — The City of Galveston is asking its residents for help in selecting its official city flag. 

Last year, the City of Galveston’s Cultural Arts Commission asked artists to submit designs for a flag representing Galveston. The commission said they  received dozens of flag submissions and selected the top 10 based on certain criteria which included:

  • Keep it simple
  • Use meaningful symbolism
  • Use 2 or 3 basic colors
  • No lettering or seals
  • Be distinctive or be related

Residents can vote for their top three choices here. You have until Sunday, Feb. 7 to vote. 

Once all votes are submitted, the final designs will be submitted to the city council for a final vote.
