Leesburg Today in Virginia (US) is reporting that the town of Leesburg is considering a town flag. The proposals by Councilman Robert J. Zoldos feature the town hall surrounded by a circle. Ten possible color combinations are under
consideration. If the idea appeals to the rest of the town council, Councilman Fernando J. Martinez is proposing that there be a flag contest.

The town of Leesburg, Virginia is holding a contest for a town flag. The five finalist designs were posted at www.leesburgva.gov/250 (no longer available).

The Town of Leesburg, Virginia, USA, adopted a new flag. Here are the story and a photo of it:
"Loudoun County Supervisor Kelly Burk, who represents Leesburg, stands next to Leesburg's 250th Anniversary flag design contest winner. The flag was unveiled during Leesburg's 250th Anniversary celebration Sept. 14. Although it was chosen as the favorite among online voters, who polled for their favorite flag in August, the flag faces town council approval before becoming the town's official flag. It was designed by Mitch Burrill and an anonymous designer."

There is some doubt that this flag will be officially adopted. Several members of the town council decided at the last minute that they were not satisfied with the design procedure. They went ahead with the unveiling (it was part of the town's 250th anniversary celebration), and six flags were made in advance. It's not clear what will happen next.
