City of Manchester, New Hamphire Flag Design Contest

We have joined forces with three other Manchester-based organizations to sponsor a contest for the design of a new flag for the City of Manchester, New Hampshire. Information about the contest and how to submit a flag design can be found on the contest’s website at

Joining us in sponsoring this citywide contest are the New Hampshire Institute of Art (NHIA), the Manchester Historic Association, and the Manchester Arts Commission.

The Manchester Flag contest is open to all. Designs can be submitted via the contest’s website at between now and the submission deadline of May 15, 2017 at 5 p.m. An independent panel of seven judges consisting of representatives from the city government, city schools, and the four sponsoring institutions will select three design finalists. City of Manchester residents will then select the winning flag via a non-binding referendum on the November election ballot.

A new design for the Manchester city flag is a fantastic opportunity to encourage civic engagement while also positively marketing and branding our community. The city flag also serves as a tool that shares a story about history and future of Manchester to those throughout the state of New Hampshire and beyond.
