Ha!  Before I read the caption, I thought that lower right was one of the options and I was getting ready to say, "Gag...!"

B is good. 

A looks derivative. 

C is good, but a little 'busy'.

Yuck  Undecided

Not entirely a fan of any. I don't see any being identified as truly Tulsan. I guess the one with the dreamcatcher, as it is probably the closest in relation to the OK State flag (using Colorado/Denver as a standard, the two are similar but different enough).

Meh.  None of them are bad, none of them blow me away.  That's probably a requisite to be a flag for any government.  At least all are somewhat unique and identifiable, none are a detailed logo indistinguishable from distance with a blue field in the background the the word of whatever entity it belongs to inscribed.

I viscerally like C, but it doesn't remind of of Tulsa at all.  A has a clever use of the T logo.  B's dream catcher is cliche, but an homage to the Native American heritage I guess.

I have ideas bouncing in my head, but not sure I could do any better.

Dreamcatchers are Ojibwe. But we have a governor whose daughter wears a headdress, so what do we know about cultural appropriation?

I think A is the only real choice here.

A is supposed to be an odd riff on the Tulsa city shield, I take it?

B I get with the Indian heritage, but C is a mystery to me.  How exactly does that tie in to Tulsa?  It’s like a new logo submission for Dos Equis.

I like A because it does reference the shield...but it's also a T, a diamond and a tree. B is cheesy and C is just a design with no reference to anything.

A for the win.
Santa Fe can have B.
C is a chain link fence.

All three suck. But B sucks the least, so that's the winner. I have spoken.

So this new flag will attract tourists at a rate higher than the costs of replacing all the flags?

Will they be replacing the shield "flag" on all the city vehicles as well?

What about taking B, flipping the dreamcatcher and tweaking it to make it look like the downtown skyline?

Crude mockup. I'm seeing a lot of issues with using the dreamcatcher on comments/Facebook.
