Milwaukee Flag: The People's Flag of Milwaukee - Sunrise Over the Lake
 

Sunrise Over the Lake

Designed by Robert Lenz

The sun rising over Lake Michigan symbolizes a new day. The light blue bars in its reflection represent the city’s three rivers and three founding towns. Gold represents our brewing history and white symbolizes unity.

Rated highest among four other finalists, as determined by over 7,000 citizens in on online rating poll.

Professional designers and facilitators engaged hundreds of students in workshops across the city. Months of social media communications invited amateurs and professionals alike to enter their flag designs. The result was over 1,000 stunning entries!

Five expert judges gathered on April 23, 2016 and narrowed down the entries to 45 semifinalists and five finalists. Following the announcement of the five finalists at City Hall on May 14, 2016, Milwaukeeans rated each on a 0–10 scale to determine the highest rated entry.
