THE NEW FLAG HAS BEEN CHOSEN!
Thank you to all the designers, judges, and voters!
“I love Northern California and am particularly in love with my home town, Redding. As such, I
wanted this design to represent some of the best things that Shasta County has to offer. The
blue in the top of the flag represents both the clear blue skies of Redding and the cool bodies of
water such as Lake Shasta and Whiskeytown. These places offer us an oasis from the scorching
sun, represented in this design by the large yellow half-circle in the bottom half of the
composition. The last piece is the Sundial Bridge in the center, simplified to be easily
recognizable. I tried to divert from using our bridge, but in the end, I kept coming back to it.
Why fight what makes us unique? These colors and shapes remind me of the place I love so
much, and I hope they do the same for you.” -Ashley Boban, winning flag designer
