To The Daily Sun,
I have a comment to Councilor Bownes and his committee in designing a new Laconia flag, as reported in The Sun.
I would suggest that each committee member obtain the booklet titled "Good Flag, Bad Flag". It talks about five principles in designing a great flag. It was written by Ted Kaye and other flag experts. It could be used also to set parameters to prospective designers in the competition.
There are copies of this booklet on sale on Amazon at a small price.
If you do a search on "Good Flag, Bad Flag", one of the results should be the title of the booklet, with input from the Portland Flag Association. The entire booklet is there, and can probably be printed. Designers could also avail themselves of this information.
It sounds like an interesting project, but very difficult for the committee and the City Council to decide upon a winner.
Good luck on your journey to creating a meaningful and recognized symbol for Laconia.
