Cedar Rapids Flag
🏴 3' x 4.5' Cedar Rapids flag with grommets and double stitched edges to reduce fraying.
✍️ The Design: Unveiled on September 18, 2021, the Cedar Rapids City Flag was a public initiative with entries from 200 citizens. The North American Vexillological Association helped judge and steered the committee to this wonderful result.
The blue represents the Cedar River.
The green represents Mays Island and the recreational areas.
The white represents the homes, businesses and infrastructure.
The white arch represents forward progress and the city's future, as well as flood protection, which interacts with — and protects the community from — the river.
The white star represents the historic structures built on Mays Island, its five points illustrating the "City of Five Seasons".
Our flags are durable 200D polyester (most flags you'll find on the internet are cheap ~75D). In our testing, we selected 200D as the perfect flag material; anything heavier doesn't fly well and the "back" doesn't get enough ink, anything lighter feels cheap and wont last very long.
We print this flag as a one-sided print and make sure that the back has ample (around 90%) bleed-through.
Each flag is folded by hand on our dining room table and ready to be used on a flag pole, boat, hung on a wall, or to proudly march with.
Created in the most Earth-conscious way we can. We use home-compostable and discreet shipping bags.
