A new Flag for OrlandoDefining our identity for generations to come
The Old Flag
- Keep it simple: The flag should be so simple that a child can draw it from memory.
- Use meaningful symbolism: The flag’s images, colors, or patterns should relate to what it symbolizes.
- Use 2-3 basic colors: Limit the number of colors on the flag to three, which contrast well and come from the standard color set.
- No lettering or seals: Never use writing of any kind or an organization’s seal.
- Be distinctive or be related: Avoid duplicating other flags, but use similarities to show connections.
THE IDEAI wanted to reflect on the values that the flag should carry, the things that define us as a city and our potential. So here’s what I came up with.

ABOUT METhe designer and insights
UX Designer & Web Developer
Hi, I’m Jaime. I’m a UX designer • webdev • geek • engineer • bootstrapper • podcaster • lived in Orlando from 2014 to 2017.
I first visited Orlando when I was 5. I’ve been coming here almost every year until I moved in, in 2014 and yearly since I moved out.
I love this city as it was my own. I feel it as my own. After I moved here I really feel in love with it deeply. It’s values, the people, the land, the growth is something I’m fascinated by and really proud to be a part of.
I’d love to contribute this flag to Orlando. I think it represents it fully and it could be a symbol for generations to come.
