Anchorage, Alaska

This Anchorage, Alaska, flag design consists of a hoist-facing yellow pentagon on a blue background, with a blue anchor in the center of the flag. The blue and yellow represent Alaska and the anchor is a symbol of the city. The arrangement of the yellow shape is similar to the geographic layout of the peninsula which Anchorage sits on.

The current flag of Anchorage is yellow with the city's seal on it, and of course, the word "ANCHORAGE" on it, in all caps. Although it's unique, it needs a much simpler format. My design keeps the uniqueness, but retains all symbolism, and looks as good at the current flag, possibly even better.

I like this one, it kind of reminds me of Barbados (which I like). Nice strong colours.
