Sounds like a whole lot of rationalization going on there...since there is no "none of the above" option listed, I am betting that of the 30,000 who have watched their show, a good number would have voted "no" if the possibility existed.  Just because 6,000 voted for one of the three does NOT mean that most people like any one of the three. 

They need to fix the poll to make it valid and do it again!


How is that for "snarky", Kevin...??!!

So my take is that you like the extremely stylistic/abstract designs more so than a more immediately recognizable one?   Not disparaging, just observing.

Your design was as abstract as theirs with the rainbow stars.

Sounds like Tulsa SOP, SNAFU.

A - Looks like a flag for some resort chain like Marriott/Hilton/Sheraton

B - I like, be seems more symbolic to the state rather than Tulsa

C - Looks like it needs to be strung up with all the other semaphore flags on a cruise ship.

JMO, YMMV

Here's Orlando's choices:

Although it appears they actually got input and did a redesign round:

One more time...  I'm not advocating for that design.   Even I don't like it, as it's too busy and trying to do too much.  I do agree on the "rainbow" stars, even with stars, the added colors were just too much.  As I said, less than 10 minutes of thought went into it.

But no, it is not more abstract than the others.  (OK, maybe more abstract than #2, but that's just a shield / dream catcher, so is too derivative of the state flag.)   I actually added the stars to mimic the Chicago flag, which seems to be held up as a great flag.  Stars are obvious symbols, and are not abstract.  They are perhaps one of the most commonly used symbols overall. 

The one I like the best so far, with the obvious symbols, is some version of the last one by Swake.  The Driller and/or a Derrick, with the council oak, over the stripes.

Interesting that all four finalists incorporate an "O" in the design.  I thought letters were bad form?

Not quite as important as President, but I truly wish to he$$ that we did have that choice - and restart the election process with the previous losers no longer eligible to run for that cycle!!

No one cares about form.   Words are fine.

I was just ribbbing grizzle a bit.  In one of his earlier post he said the "T" on my flag was bad form.  Wink

I'm just wondering if our team would be up for a redesign round. Orlando did it, the tulsa pedestrian bridge did it.

Heck, why not just have a flag with a big blue "T" on it on a yellow background, or some such colors.

Don't know what the first thing is..  Probably the sun.   It's definitely a circle though, so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.
Two are definitely the sun more than they are "O"
The fountain thing might be the top of an "O"

Was there a "none-of-the-above" choice regarding the new pedestrian bridge?
