Previous citizen input on the flag issue
The City's Department of Public Information & Civic Engagement conducted an informal survey on the current Springfield flag and the proposed new flag in August.
A description of the history of both the current flag and the proposed new flag was provided, along with an explanation of the symbolism behind each design.
When asked which flag option they are most supportive of, 72% of the survey's nearly 3,500 respondents indicated the proposed City flag. About 19% indicated a preference for the current flag and about 8% indicated they were interested in other flag design options. Full results.
About the proposed flag's design
In the center is a dark blue and white eight-pointed emblem, called the "Compass Crown." The compass point design represents Springfield's role as a crossroads to the nation. The crown is a reference to Springfield's nickname, Queen City of the Ozarks. Three four-pointed stars represent three elements of the city: innovative spirit, connection with nature and Ozarks culture. A broad white horizontal stripe is meant to symbolize the Ozark Plateau, on which Springfield was built, and Route 66. A light blue background represents Ozarks water and skies.

"A city's flag should elicit feelings of civic pride," says Cora Scott, director of Public Information and Civic Engagement for the City of Springfield. "City Council wants to know if Springfield citizens connect with the new flag designed by the Springfield Identity Project and whether citizens support council adopting it as the official City flag."
