Pocatello leaders raised a new flag in front of city hall this week -- after its old one was described as “the worst on the continent.”
The Idaho State Journal reports the new flag -- with three red mountain peaks set on a blue backdrop and a compass sun rising above the most prominent pinnacle -- was unveiled in a city ceremony Tuesday.
The previous flag contained three purple peaks and a city slogan with copyright and trademark symbols, and it was declared the “worst city flag on the continent” by the North American Vexillological Association, a group that studies flags. This declaration was bolstered in a TED Talk by podcast host Roman Mars.
The city formed two committees last year to design and choose the new flag.
