Finally! Your New Dallas Flag

It took a while, but we finally got there. Last week, I smartened up and decided to let my fellow Dallas citizens help pick a new city flag for all of us to rally around, because that has traditionally been the role of a city flag. But the choices weren't quite good enough. "We need Pegasus!" people scream-typed to me. I'm hard-headed sometimes (a lot of times) so it took a while (too long) to get through to me. But you did, and I spent all weekend in the lab. And I think this both honors the past 30 years, as well as the long tradition of city flags.

PEGASUSES

It took a while, but we finally got there.

Last week, I smartened up and decided to let my fellow Dallas citizens help pick a new city flag for all of us to rally around, because that has traditionally been the role of a city flag. But the choices weren’t quite good enough. “We need Pegasus!” people scream-typed to me. I’m hard-headed sometimes (a lot of times) so it took a while (too long) to get through to me.

But you did, and I spent all weekend in the lab. And I think this both honors the past 30 years, as well as the long tradition of city flags.
