 The Queen City is closer to getting a new official flag. On June 10 at Manchester City Hall, judges selected three flag designs out of the 288 entries in the Manchester Waves Flag Contest. The three finalists will appear on the city’s November election ballot.

According to a press release from the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, Finalist Flag 1 was designed by Megan Roy of Manchester. It contains the same yellow and blue as the state flag and a crown to represent the city’s nickname: the Queen City. 
Finalist Flag 2 was designed by Peter Raiche of Manchester. It has a winding blue line that represents the Merrimack River, a red border that represents the mill buildings and a crown at the center. 
Finalist Flag 3 was designed by Brian Gallagher of North Bethesda, Maryland. The white lines represent the Amoskeag Falls and the letter ‘M’ for Manchester. The green represents the city’s green space, and the blue represents the waters of the Merrimack River.
Judges were Donna Gamache from the Chamber of Commerce; Karen Mayeu, head of graphic design at the New Hampshire Institute of Art; John Clayton, executive director of the Manchester Historic Association; Daniel Berube, chair of the Manchester Arts Commission, and a few elected officials.
