From 7,000 designs and ideas submitted by Utahns from across the state.
Inspired by Utah's history
To 20 semi-final designs that generated more than 44,000 survey responses.
Now, one flag to represent Utah's shared identity, our history, and our geography. A modern companion flag drawn from the images on the state's traditional flag.
The Utah State Flag Task Force voted on November 10 to send a new flag design to the Utah Legislature for consideration.
Here’s what the symbols on the proposed flag represent:
- Blue for knowledge, freedom, and tradition, as well as Utah's natural lakes and dark skies.
- A band of rugged white suggests Utahns’ idea of home, and evoke the mountains that called to, and cradled, generations of our ancestors.
- A gold hexagon for prosperity and industry, our state's slogan, and our desert landscapes.
- A beehive for prosperity and our identity as the Beehive State.
- An eight-pointed star for hope, which represents the foundation of our state, and for the state's Tribal Nations.
- A red rock valley represents Southern Utah’s majestic landscapes.
