(Harrison, Oh.) – A new flag will soon be flying high above the City of Harrison.

Harrison residents recently voted on three designs for the City’s new flag, which were created by three Flag Club members at Harrison High School, reports The Harrison Press.

All three designs were presented to city council during its regular meeting on April 19. Each of the flags featured blue and green coloring, with the city logo, and symbolism representing the city’s history and future.

The winning flag, titled The Sun Rays Flag, was designed by Zoe Baglien. The two runner-up flags were The Roadways Flag by Louis Acra and The Bridge Flag by Peyton Hon.

“I am honored to partner with our students in our community,” said councilwoman Cindy Abrams. “Hard work does pay off and I look forward to seeing the new flag flying on flag poles throughout Harrison soon.”

The new City flag is expected to be flying high in about three weeks when it is printed and ready.

Once printed, Harrison residents will have the opportunity to purchase the winning flag from the Harrison High School Flag Club. All proceeds will go to a non-profit organization to be named later.
