The Portola Is Getting A Flag, Submit Your Design By November 15th!

Our little urban enclave tucked between the hills of McLaren Park and the freeways is getting a flag. The folks at the Portola Urban Greening (P.U.G.) community group are hosting a competition in which neighbors can create and submit their design for a flag that represents the community. P.U.G. will be hosting a free workshop open to everyone for those who would like to design in the company of others or for anyone who isn’t feeling confident in their artistic skills but has an idea. The winning design will fly at Burrows Pocket park as well as businesses and homes throughout the neighborhood.  All the details including submission dates and how to get templates in the release from P.U.G. below.

All The Details & How To Enter Your Design

The Portola’s Getting a Neighborhood Flag!
The Portola neighborhood is hosting an open competition for all residents to create a Portola Garden District flag. The flag will hang proudly in Burrows Pocket Park, along San Bruno Ave, and in local businesses and residences.
We Stand Together
As a diverse neighborhood, recently united after years of being split into different supervisor districts, we’re excited to build upon the city’s recent recognition of the Portola’s identity as San Francisco’s Garden District.
But I’m Not an Artist…
Don’t worry! This Thursday, 11/2 from 5:30-8:30, there’ll be professional designers to help advise and workshop your flag ideas. This competition is about highlighting the Portola’s values through a shared visual symbol – if you bring the inspiration, they’ll bring the artistry.
Let’s Do It!
You can find more details about the design competition HERE and download a PDF with specific instructions and a template to either draw, collage, or digitally paste your design. Completed designs can be turned in to the Portola Branch Library or submitted online.
