Committee announces public contest to design new Laconia city flag
LACONIA — Artists take note, a city flag redesign committee will soon be reaching out to the public for submissions.
The contest will begin Monday, Aug. 1 and run through Labor Day (Sept. 5). A $500 reward will be given to the artist who creates the winning design.
A committee member and downtown merchant said that the flag could be used to help residents better identify the city and brand Laconia's image during city events, like the pumpkin festival and motorcycle week.
Designs can be submitted to the Laconia Public Library or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
