Explanation and image of two flags of the City of Lindsborg

The flag was designed by Lindsborg Convention and Visitors Bureau director Holly Lofton and approved by the Lindsborg City Council. It will be first unfurled by Mayor Becky Anderson at the corner of Lincoln and Main streets at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 28, as a kick-off to Lindsborg in Bloom.
The new Lindsborg flag is part of an effort spearheaded by former Mayor Bill Taylor, who has long wanted to see the an installation of the US, Swedish and Kansas flags in a prominent place along Main Street. In focusing in on the intersection of Main and Lincoln, Bill could see that a fourth flag, a Lindsborg flag, would be important. Meanwhile, at Bill’s request and on Bill's dime, Dauer Welding designed and manufactured a test bracket that could be mounted on our new spun concrete light poles at an adequate height, would meet flag etiquette for a 24-hour installation, and in a way that would blend nicely. Then Bill raised money from local businesses and institutions to pay for the project. Ta-da!
PS: The City Council adopted *both* designs shown here -- one with kurbits on the Dala horse mane and one without. In doing so, the council was looking toward future possible uses. Some applications may be clearer to the viewer with less detail and more block color, as in the version on the left. Other applications, including the flag to be flown in the Main and Lincoln project, will be able to use the kurbit finery.
