to take an idea in our head--- and put it on paper--- i think it will be fun. for months, there have been presentations ? we are a true melting pot of people and we have been since day 1. just like this one it should be effective and handsome. it should look good. a city wide call--- for something new. flags are symbols. they are meant to symbolize greater themes. steve kodis' idea has been rattling in his brain for months.n take me, i would talk to them. i didnt care. the graphic designer is asking people to re-imagine--- the city flag of milwaukee. i cant say i was familiar with our flag before hand. we are really hoping this will be the final conversation on our flag to adopt for the greater good. he has asked designers, students, anyone--- to send in their ideas. its very impactful to see all of them out, physically together. and boy did they. in milwaukee's third ward--- entries seem endless, in an upstairs office space. all in all we ended up with 1,006 designs. kodis, has gathered a team, to narrow the field. i might be a little
to understand why there is a desire to create a new flag--- it helps to take a look at the current rendition. the milwaukee city flag was designed by an alderman in 1954. and what he did was he took all the elements and kind of rolled it out on a sheet of paper, and it became the flag. unfortunately milwaukees flag is an excellent bad example of flag design. the problem was he thew so much stuff in there, that it kind of just dies of its own weight. haha. we asked people to rate the design qualities of 150 city flags. and milwaukee came in 147th. flag expert ted kaye and milwaukee historian john gurda, panel helping shrink the field. were looking for a unique symbol. a unique color pallet. with very strong symbolism. each design they pick up-- i guess what i am looking for is movement, beauty, and meaning. or i like a lot of the angles. you can seea similarity
truly believe we deserve to have a great flag. something that were proud of. slowly--- but surely--- hundreds of designs--- are narrowed down. id like to welcome you on behalf of the aiga, and greater together. and unveiled. this started as a very simple idea. that milwaukee is a great city with a great future and in turn, needs a great flag. then in the corner there is a blue stripe also which represents the milwaukee river system. at city hall joel lange is looking up at his entry. i drew like 50 of them because i was bored one day. and im a student so i was taking a study break, so i started drawing different flags. he's made the top 50. today is an unbelievable day. they'd make it this far--- the last two efforts to redesign the flag, the city was involved. those efforts failed. so something unconventional had to happen this time around. something, like taking a personal risk-- i decided to quit my day job so i could lead this initiative full time. giving it your all, and hope the community jumps on board. a year ago this just started with an idea, and i was just sort of yelling it out to the world. and it turned into something much bigger than me. with v-i-p's in the crowd--- 5 finalists are revealed. its milwaukees past present and future, moving in a positive direction. there is just one thing left to do. the people's flag of milwaukee---must be decided by you. an online vote--- leading us here. decision day--- on flag day. sound of steve kodis i'm nearvous. excitied an idea---
flag to represent our city, hoping for strong winds of support to adopt this new symbol of milwaukee. a new flag to represent our city, hoping for strong winds of milwaukee. the winning flag is called "sunrise over the lake" the people's flag of milwaukee is now working to try and get elected officials to adopt it as the official city flag. want to learn more about the design, and its meaning? or your fox six news mobile app, and click on "links." it's one of the highlights of the wisconsin state fair -- the food! and this week, one dish will be crowned champion of the golden
