Redding City Flag

Great cities deserve great design.



“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, flag designer
