Cedar Park Council votes to reconsider design for unpopular new flag


Cedar Park’s new city flag is coming down.

The Cedar Park City Council voted Thursday night to reconsider the design for the flag and take a public vote on it. Council members also approved taking down the new flag at all the city facilities where it has been flying.

The decision came after a backlash from residents unhappy about the new city flag after it was unveiled in early December. More than 200 people have posted comments on Facebook about how much they dislike the new flag, including the four white X’s running down its center. Others told officials the public should have had a say in its design.
