City of Des Moines 3x5 double sided flag. The Des Moines skyline and wording reads correctly on both sides of this double sided flag. Made out of heavy polyester with four rows of stitching around the whole flag. Fly from your commercial flagpole or decorate your wall.
In 2008, the city opted to develop a new flag design, however. According to Public Information Officer Amelia Hamilton-Morris, the intent was not to retire the bridge imagery but update it to include a representation of the extensive redevelopment that has taken place in the area.
“We went to the new design in 2008–2009, because much of Des Moines has been transformed: It’s a totally different landscape. Old buildings are gone and we now have new bridges, including a pedestrian one.” The city has also become a formidable business center, which is also represented by the skyline. “We did the redesign because it’s not the same city. Once we rebuilt the downtown, we needed something more reflective of who we are now.”
