• To coincide with Design Week Birmingham 2015, the BHM Flag Project held an open competition to reimagine the city flag of Birmingham, Alabama.

    We received more than 180 submissions -- many from Birmingham but some from as far away as Australia and Croatia. (Thank you to everyone who submitted a design.) A panel of 10 judges voted independently on the flags, and then BFP organizers tallied the votes to determine the three finalists. The finalists are displayed below in random order.

    Online voting will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, October 23, 2015. The winning flag will be unveiled at the closing event of Design Week Birmingham on Saturday, October 24. The winning designer will receive $250. For more information and advanced tickets to the event, visit BHM FEAST.

    Vote for your favorite flag! (Please vote only once.)

  • This is to help ensure that you are a real person and not a robot. After the winning flag has been unveiled, we will send one email to all voters to let them know the outcome. We will never share your information with anyone else.
