I personally prefer the northstar flag design, though not exclusively. The compass design (as an example) also looks cool, though it may need modifications before use. The left-side stripe in that picture above doesn't do much for me either, though not because of connotations of Texas. A guidon shape automatically reminds me of Ohio's flag, which has always bothered me, so I'd prefer for us to have a rectangular flag.
That landmark Spiel should absolutely happen - things are
coming together for the expo in 2023, so we ought to take advantage of that. I'd love to see some good landmark designs, having not had much of a clue as to what it could/should/would look like. Involving the north star is a very appealing idea to ponder.
Yeah. St Louis. Hotbed of immigration. because arch
It would enhance branding/quality of life efforts, not supplant or be them. St Louis doesn't have as good of a quality of life as we do, which is the most important part of attracting people.
