🏴 3' x 5' Duluth, Minnesota flag with grommets and double stitched edges to reduce fraying.
✍️ The Design: Designed Blane Tetreault (pronounced Tay-tro). The Duluth community was asked to submit designs a new Duluth flag in January of 2019 and a total of 195 submissions from 98 artists were received. The artist has this to say about the flag's design:
The colors found in the Duluth flag represent the clear blue of the sky, refreshing water of Lake Superior, deep green of the north woods, and snowy winters. The design acknowledges the ancestral and contemporary presence of the Anishinaabeg - and many other Tribal Nations - who have called this community Misaabekong (“the place of the giants”) home for millennia. The design symbolizes the rolling water of Onigamiising (“the place of the small portage”) where the water meets and where people have always gathered to meet. Together, we call this gathering place: Duluth. The design symbolizes Duluth's hills and designates some of the area's most prominent topographical features: Thompson Hill, Enger Hill, and Hawk's Ridge. Polaris, the North Star, is perched above the city. The star symbolizes the Zenith City of the North, a leader of the northern sky and center of all good things.
See the Size Guide video below to see Michael explain every size we offer.
🧵 Single Sided Flags are durable 200D polyester (most flags you'll find on the internet are cheap ~75D) with two grommets on the hoist edge. 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.
🧵 Double Sided Flags are three layers, two art layers sandwiching a blackout fabric in between complete with two grommets on the hoist edge. These flags are heavier than the single sided and take more wind to get going. Perfect for flag pole display.
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.
