“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.”
