Jun. 10—City officials invite the community to celebrate Duluth's new flag, nearly two years after the design was chosen.
A ceremony will be at noon Monday, June 21, outside City Hall, 411 W. First St., at the Priley Drive flagpole, according to a news release from the city.
The new flag design, created by the Tetreault family of four, was among nine submissions voted on by the public in 2019. The Duluth City Council later approved the new design.
At the ceremony, Duluth's fire and police departments will install the new flag. Mayor Emily Larson and Council President Renee Van Nett will share remarks. There will also be a musical performance.
"This flag design and its narrative description represent Duluth by telling a fuller story of who we are — from our unique neighborhoods to our natural beauty to the history and current identity of our people," Larson said in the release. "It is our hope that this flag strengthens residents' sense of pride and place, while also helping to visually anchor and brand our community for visitors."
The flag will soon fly on all city flagpoles.
