Entries must be received by Monday, October 15, 2018 at 5 p.m. to be considered. All entries become property of the City of Fayetteville, and the designer relinquishes all rights to the design. The City reserves the right to alter, modify, or combine designs to create an official City of Fayetteville Flag. Nevertheless, to the best of the committee’s abilities, any authors whose submissions contribute to the final design will receive due recognition.
Designers certify that they are the original creators of the artwork and that it is not copyrighted or trademarked.
The City reserves the right to use entries for promotional purposes, including publication on social media.
The City’s goal is a free and fair contest, subject to reasonable changes.
The purpose of the contest is to allow the City to review flag designs and ideas, and ultimately to determine if there is a need largely based on public sentiment to replace the current City of Fayetteville Flag. Fayetteville City Council members will have final say on keeping or changing the Flag.
