The Utah State Flag Task Force — in consultation with its six subcommittees — created this timeline and process to consider flag ideas and design submissions.

The goal: Create Utah's "People Flag"

More than 7,000 Utahns submitted flag designs and ideas. Now professional artists and designers are helping review submissions, create their own designs, and select final designs to be posted for public comments.
