SALT LAKE CITY — Lt. Gov. Deidre Henderson unveiled Thursday the 20 semifinalist designs vying to become Utah’s new state flag.
“What we have here on the 20th, in many cases, is a combination of ideas,” Jill Love, executive director of the Utah Department of Cultural and Community Engagement and a member of the task force, told KSL.com. “We tried to bring the public to these (20 designs), the best of the best that represent the significant symbols that we heard were important to Utah. And that also includes colors.

These flags will be displayed in a display at the Capitol, as well as in Logan at Utah State University and Southern Utah University in Cedar City.
Utahns can weigh in on the semi-finalists here through October 5. Descriptions of each semi-finalist can be found on the task force website.
After the public comment period ends in October, the design review committee will narrow the field down again to four or six finalists.
From there, the flag task force will present one or two finalists to Governor Spencer Cox and Lt. Governor Diedre Henderson, who will present their choice to the Utah Legislature in a special session.
The process is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
